Madison Darling

Director of Operations

As Director of Operations for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, Madison advances the day-to-day operations for the NCOSE office, optimizes office processes for efficiency and effectiveness, manages relationships with office service providers, executes in-office events, conducts the Defender Program, and generally aids in the operations needs of the staff. Madison also speaks regularly on activism theory and techniques, engaging the church in combatting sexual exploitation both within and without, the impact of community groups on fighting sexual exploitation, and the public health harms of pornography.

Madison has been working in non profit operations since 2010, when she founded and ran the Suicide Prevention Organization (SPO), an organization which was recognized by the Alabama Department of Public Health as a community leader on teen suicide prevention in the educational setting, serves as the basis for pending Alabama legislation, and is currently entering its eighth year of active operation. During her time leading SPO, Madison traveled across the state of Alabama giving over three hundred presentations on the topic of teen suicide prevention as well as on starting similar programs using sustainable methods. Madison then continued onto Blanket Fort Hope as the Education Coordinator, where she developed a training curriculum on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking. Additionally, Madison owned and operated a sole proprietorship, Darling Matters, where she was approached by the Birmingham Police Department to build a peer-to-peer mentoring program to improve officer wellbeing. After building out the framework for this program, Madison went on to construct then execute the first ever Alabama Forensic Institute for the University of Alabama’s College of Communication and Information Sciences, which continues teaching public speaking skills to high school students today.

Madison earned a Bachelors of Social Work from the University of Alabama (magna cum laude with University Honors). Madison also holds a certification in Mental Health First Aid. She relocated to Washington, D.C. in August of 2016 and when not at the office, Madison enjoys taking in a comedy show, exploring Washington, D.C., finding the best local ice cream places, and relaxing on her front porch with a good book.
