I served for two years as a community educator for a nonprofit organization that works to free youth from trafficking. In this role, I presented a monthly trafficking prevention program to girls in a juvenile detention center. Often victims would be in juvenile detention after having been trafficked, but no one knew that this had happened to them. Because I understood the crime, they would self-identify to me, and I could then connect them with the right people to get the services they needed.
