Welcome!

Welcome Readers,

In 2017, I published a fiction novel concerning human trafficking in America.

There are approximately 40.3 million people today stuck in trafficking. (Global Slavery Index)

There are over 403,000 in the United States. (Global Slavery Index)

Together with the SWLA Abolitionists, we traveled and spoke as keynote speaker events all across the southern states. I was able to travel to the beautiful country of Nicaragua and do work there with an incredible group of women in late 2018 during a time of civil unrest.

However, burn out is a real thing and in 2019 I closed the doors and rested. In the last few months, I have begun to think about finished book two and begin advocating once again.

Welcome to this journey to bring awareness to human trafficking in America and how ordinary citizens can bring light to the darkness.

“We found out that slavery was not just in our history books, but that it was still around and bigger than ever before. That shocked us, broke our hearts and urged us to help end it. Right now, there are roughly 45 million people stuck in modern-day slavery/human trafficking. These people are bought and sold like cattle, but they are treated much worse than any animal.

It’s not just happening in India or Asia either. An estimated 200,000 are in the United States. Children are being sold online and on our street corners for rape. Adults are being forced to work in our agriculture fields under violence, sexual abuse and are sometimes chained.

We refuse to let things stay this way. We have seen the results of good people standing up. We know that we can end it. In fact, if we could get just 10% of Americans to care and really get active in the fight against slavery, every single human trafficking victim would have an advocate fighting for them. That, my friends, would change things.”
