Together we are better
When communities who are directly affected by human trafficking and organizations that care about the victim's recovery come together,  great things get done.

When voices come we will not be silenced anymore. 
When surivors come on the scene they make it better by being a beacon of hope and a light in the darkness.

In every working recovery process there is a survivor led componant.  That only a survivor who has been there and done that and has found a way out can bring that  sense of hope. Giving vision to If I can do it you can so can you, without judgement, condemnation or prejuidice.  Surviors make recovery from HT appear possible, not a life sentence.
