WORD ON THE STREET
Empowering survivors, professionals and the community to learn about what happens behind closed doors where crime usually happens and not on a television screen is important to help keep life real. Real collective solutions require a real understanding of the problems we are facing and how to face it collectively. Our individual learning curves and capacity also varies based our previous experience and training on how we looked at the problem. Anti-trafficking work will not always appear wrapped up in a nice bow or people's imagination of a "rescue" and "happy endings". However, recovering victims and hearing first hand from what they have to say are necessary steps to improve the future of the work.
