Fresno Pacific University
Also known as FPU, Fresno Pacific University is an accredited Christian university founded in 1944. FPU challenges students to think critically, excel academically and live ethically. Our core values and commitment to building character spring from a distinctively Christian perspective. Fresno Pacific prepares people to lead in professions, serve society and transform culture. We measure our success by the accomplishments of our graduates. They become leaders at work, in church, and the world.
Garden Pathways’ mission is to transform lives from the inside out. They engage individuals with their Comprehensive Mentoring Programs, their Downtown Education Center, and with Arts Mentoring. One of their greatest successes has been partnering with organizations to help persons in the community receive job training and find opportunities to provide for their families.

Trade of Innocents: Symposium
Trade of Innocents was released as a Hollywood feature film to show the world that slavery still exists in this world. The film also initiated and fueled a movement. After the release of the film, we partnered with the film’s producers to host a symposium at California State University Bakersfield to discuss all of the aspects of this modern day evil and how individuals are engaging in combating it with partnerships between law enforcement, rehabilitation, and political action.
