We work continually to assist the journey of restoration undertaken by victims of sex trafficking and to repair where the system of justice has failed them.
Now we know. Now YOU know too. Together we can change the world for “Girls Like Me”, for girls like Yvonne…like Kim…like Tiffany…. and thousands more we do not yet know.
Together we can stop them from becoming victims of traffickers, first and foremost. But for those who have become victims of a system that failed to recognize who they were, we must offer those in prison a path to justice.
