We hope to shift the mainstream narrative around human trafficking from focusing on the pain and blame of victims and survivors, to focus on the systems of exploitation that allow trafficking to happen in the first place.
Survivors of human trafficking deserve more than the services we are currently providing, and they deserve equal access to government insurance. Human trafficking is a bipartisan issue, so why is it that the healthcare legislature is not reflecting the respect for all humans – especially survivors of human trafficking? In order to create a society that reflects our support for survivors of human trafficking, we must first provide care for the physical needs of the person. The time is now to take action and demand freedom for everyone.
