After witnessing children face injustice during an around the world journey in 2004, Jonathan Olinger founded DTJ — the global voice of children — believing historically that injustice does not cease until stories are told. Having since traveled to over 50 nations including Burma, DR Congo, Iraq and Haiti to listen to children tell their stories, Jonathan has a global perspective of the greatest crisis the world has yet to see — millions of the world's children living in crisis. DTJ works to expose extreme forms of injustice those children face and link intervention partners until change is realized. Jonathan is a child advocate, social entrepreneur and documentary filmmaker and strives to invite others to create solutions that protect children globally. Most recently, Jonathan produced the documentary Rescued with CNN and is currently co-directing DTJ's forthcoming documentary release, Not Even Bullets about two child soldiers in the Congo and their struggle to survive, escape a life of violence and find hope.
Jonathan is a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers Community and the Sandbox Network. Jonathan is also serves as the youngest board member of the Soledad O'Brien and Brad Raymond Foundation
