Two years ago, the world was introduced to Amanda Forrest’s story. She shared her story about what life is like for a victim of human sex trafficking in Idaho. Forrest wants to use her survival story when she was inside the world of human trafficking to aid other victims.
“We are aiming for a survivor centered approach,” said Forrest. “We need to provide survivors with tools they need to exit and reconstruct their lives, things like new survival skills and techniques.” This sentiment is echoed by Selah Freedom, as our organization continually works to empower survivors and is grateful to have several survivor graduates of our program now on staff. We believe that including survivor voices as a part of the solution is paramount in fighting sex trafficking.
