Two survivors come together for a powerful presentation about sex trafficking and its survivors. In fact, Ms. McKenzie states she no longer considers herself a “survivor”; she prefers the term “liberator.” Drawing on their own experiences and the experiences of other women, Ms. McKenzie and Ms. Head tell chilling stories of how traffickers lure young girls into prostitution and how the sex trafficking subculture works. They also explore the societal factors that feed into sexual exploitation: in advertising, pornography, music, vocabulary, and others. The speakers present tips on how to spot signs of trafficking and encourage people to alert law enforcement. And for those who escape, they discuss the ongoing process of recovery and restoration. These two women have joined forces in the Sun Gate Foundation, which provides educational opportunities to survivors of human trafficking.
