Taking Flight Friday, September 26!

by Jay Milbrandt (JD/MBA ’08),

He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)

Live From Thailand: An Adventure in Human Rights will begin posting on Friday, September 26. Please join me as I document my 10 day trip to the Mekong subregion of Northern Thailand. I will be blogging, posting photos, and posting video in realtime, so I invite you to check this website frequently and please comment.


More than one year ago, through a Pepperdine Law internship placement, I served an organization combatting human trafficking in Thailand. Since then, not a day goes by that I haven’t wanted to be back there. Even with an ocean in the way, I continued to invest in a group of “stateless” street children–starting a non-profit to provide legal aid and education. I’m excited to see the fruits of that labor and share this adventure with a wider audience.

Over the course of this trip, some of the highlights will be:
– Searching for Faifah, a young girl whose mother attempted to traffic her
– Documenting human rights abuses to defend “stateless” children
– Pouring out love on street kids every day
– Funding a small microfinance project with a group of hill tribe members
– Exploring a conceptual legal aid clinic within the Burmese refugee camps
– Visiting partner organizations about possible internship placements

Check back on the 26th!

  1. As I’m writing this you are probably playing video games on the plane with one free meal left to go. =) Have a safe and blessed trip! You do amazing things. Pave the way, P’Jay! Kit tueng muang Thai muan ghun!
