Voices for Humanity Uplifts D.C. Youth With Travis Ellis

Voices for Humanity: Travis Ellis

Scientology Network’s VOICES FOR HUMANITY, the weekly series presenting heroic change makers from a variety of faiths, cultures and nations, working to uplift their communities, announces a new episode featuring inner-city youth advocate, Travis Ellis, premiering Wednesday, October 30.

VOICES FOR HUMANITY airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.

In Washington, D.C., the murder rate escalated 38 percent in a single year, equating to five killings every single week in one of the city’s worst wards. Travis Ellis, minister and youth advocate, works to counter those numbers with human rights education across D.C.’s lowest-income and highest-crime areas. His delivery zones see violent crime drop by 29 percent and recidivism falls to a tenth of previous rates.


A native of Washington, D.C., Travis Ellis was raised by a single mother in Ward 8. At the age of 14, he became involved with drugs and crime, living a life on the edge. After an accident left Travis on the brink of becoming yet another D.C. statistic, he found purpose for his life and miraculously recovered. Travis left the hospital with a mission to help his community. As a youth minister, Travis now dedicates himself to safeguarding and educating young people to help them make better life choices. Preaching human rights as gospel and the means to a life free from drugs, crime and violence, Travis makes miracles happen every day.
