The Barbara Blaine Trailblazer Award: The CHILD USA Trailblazer Award has been renamed in honor of Founder of SNAP, Barbara Blaine. The Barbara Blaine Trailblazer Award will be presented to Leah Remini & Mike Rinder, Stars of Scientology: The Aftermath.
Leah Marie Remini was born in Brooklyn, New York, on June 15. She is an American actress, author, former Scientologist, and anti-Scientology activist. She starred as Carrie Heffernan on the long-running CBS comedy series The King of Queens and later co-hosted The Talk, and currently stars on Scientology:The Aftermath. A member of the Church of Scientology until 2013, Remini later departed from the Church, a chapter of her life which she wrote about in her best-selling memoir and explores in Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, a TV documentary series on A&E. Remini's departure from the Church also seemingly breathed new life into her professional career. In 2014 she began appearing regularly on The Exes, and later that year she debuted Leah Remini: It's All Relative, a reality TV show that also featured her husband, Angelo Pagán, and daughter, Sofia.
In late 2015, Remini published a memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. The controversial subject matter propelled the book to the top of The New York Times best-seller list, and also drew the interest of television executives: In November 2016, A+E premiered Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, a documentary series that features the actress interviewing other former members of the Church.
Michael John Rinder , born April 10th is an Australian former senior executive of the Church of Scientology International (CSI) and the Sea Organization based in the United States.From 1982 to 2007 Rinder served on the Board of Directors of CSI and also held the post of Executive Director of its Office of Special Affairs, overseeing the corporate, legal and public relations matters of the Church at the international level.
Rinder left the Church in 2007 after becoming aware of the authoritarian and abusive nature of the senior management under David Miscavige. Since 2016, he has co-hosted the A&E documentary series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.
The Sean P. McIlmail Hero Award will be presented to survivor, hero, and advocate Arthur Baselice for his Grassroots efforts to protect children.
Arthur Baselice Jr is a father who speaks on behalf of his son, Arthur III, silenced by a fatal heroin overdose in 2006 after years of mental anguish stemming from repeated clergy abuse. “What I do for my son, I do for the other victims,” . “I'm not interested in this for myself, although I do have an agenda, and I want the other victims to have the same due process that we are all entitled to.” -Arthur Baselice.
