Leah Albright-Byrd

Leah J. Albright-Byrd is a compelling activist, author, and artist who is known for her gift of storytelling. Whether by song, speech, or authorship, Leah uses her experience with the trials and triumphs of an intentional healing journey to help others gain freedom from the effects of trauma.
 
As a part of her passion for healing, Leah founded Bridget’s Dream in 2011; it was an organization that provided services to child and adult survivors of human trafficking. She served as the Executive Director for five years and became a national voice for the cause. Her advocacy work led to opportunities for lobbying and promoting legislative change. Eventually she also began appearing on television and radio shows to educate and inspire the public. Leah was honored to be featured on the Oprah Winfrey show, BET News, Being Mary Jane, was the subject of an Emmy-award winning interview in 2013 and has received congressional honor for her contributions to the fight against human trafficking.  
 
Her experience as an activist led to a desire for new ways to invoke societal change so she began broadening her focus to include film, books, and music. Leah is currently featured in two documentaries: California’s Forgotten Children and Still I Rise. She published her first book Determined to Dream in 2016 and is currently working on a second book project along with her first EP (both scheduled for release in 2019).
 
Leah is a graduate of William Jessup University where she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology & Theology. She continues her advocacy work by providing consultation and training to social workers, law enforcement, and other youth service providers across the United States. Though born and raised in California, she currently resides in Dallas, Texas with her sweet puppy Charlie Rose and spends most of her time reading, writing, and composing.
