The Sex-Slave Across the Street

In recent years the global community has become increasingly aware of human trafficking around the world. We talk about the root causes of trafficking like lack of opportunity and extreme poverty, which we see too often see in countries like Thailand and India. However, a less common conversation and less conceivable reality is the trafficking that is happening in our own backyards. This is a story of how a high school girl fell prey to human trafficking in her upper class Michigan town. Theresa Flores courageously shares about the three most traumatic years of her life, her journey toward restoration, and how we can be more vigilant and better prepared to fight against this issue in the United States and Canada.
