Dunn is an accidental social entrepreneur driven by a passion to make America’s campuses safer. The scale of the operation at SurvJustice, with just three people on staff, doesn’t do justice to the work of the organization. Operating on a shoe-string budget, the nonprofit has impact beyond what you’d expect. Dunn leverages volunteer interns and a small but impressive board to expand the organization’s reach. Board member Lilibet Hagel, wife of the former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, says she was impressed by Laura and SurvJustice. “I was impressed that SurvJustice offers valuable ‘nuts and bolts’ legal assistance to survivors and good, well-informed advice on how to navigate the crazy campus landscapes, none of which seem to be the same.” -------------------- Read the full Forbes article and watch the interview here: Need a corporate social responsibility speaker?
