Lori Christian

Chehalis, Washington

Lori Christian, 16, of Chehalis, Washington, a junior at William F. West High School, founded “Teens for Abused Children (TFAC),” an organization that partners with hospitals and Child Protective Services to help children who have experienced abuse; she helps raise awareness, runs clothing, toy and diaper drives, and helps create care packages for children in the foster system. TFAC is also lobbying to help pass The New Hope Law to cap the number of cases CPS caseworkers can handle at a time.
