Voices of Freedom

What is sex trafficking? Does it really happen here? What’s being done about it? How can an individual like myself help the cause? Introducing Voices of Freedom, a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Freedom team members Devin and Mandie. We’re here to cover it all, from human trafficking research and laws to personal stories from the community. We will host a variety of guests including sex trafficking survivors, Freedom a la Cart team members, partner organizations, law enforcement officials, mental health & substance use professionals, and other human trafficking experts. Join us as we take the conversation deeper, elevate survivors and their stories, educate the community, and advocate for an important cause. We can’t wait for you to join the conversation! #yourvoicematters
