Final Thoughts


We invite you to join us in keeping the momentum going so that the voices of lived experience leaders from across the country are truly heard.

We envision a future in which lived experience leaders have increased decision-making power at all stages of counter trafficking and counter exploitation initiatives, ensuring their solutions to end sex trafficking and sexual exploitation are actionized.

In the meantime, in the words of Shamin Brown, “United we stand, together we rise.”


“You know there is a prophecy and I know that prophecy is about you. It says the women have to take their power back and begin to do what women do best.”
