A Story of Survival

Human trafficking survivor Theresa Flores shared her chilling story at the Academy of the Holy Angels Upper School on February 7.

Her program included important details about how traffickers find victims and how students can protect themselves, recognize signs of trafficking, and take action to halt this second-most prevalent crime in America.

Flores advocates for stronger laws to protect victims (like the Michigan law that bears her name), promotes Fair Trade products, and initiates SOAP (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) to quietly and effectively share the HELP Hotline. She has written 5 books and hopes to release a feature film about her experience.

Read this article that includes information about Flores' personal story, how she escaped her tormentors, and more.
