Watch the video now.

We are pleased to announce the release of a groundbreakingvideo on the life of one San Francisco child sex trafficking survivor.

Child SexTrafficking: The Story of a San Francisco Survivor is now available! Produced by former Director of Media and Community Affairs Aimee Allison, this is a groundbreaking video on the life of one San Francisco child sex trafficking surivor. Released at the San Francisco Collaborative Against Human Trafficking (SFCAHT) Human Trafficking Conference in August 2013, this video features a young woman who was first trafficked at age 12 from a San Francisco middle school. Like many victims of child sex trafficking, she describes a troubled home life, arrests, probation, the child welfare system, and her neverending search for love and security. After surviving ten years of trafficking, she shares her unique perspective on healing, redemption and a wayout. It’s a must-watch for policymakers, young people, advocates, survivors, legal professionals, and educators. 

This video is beginning to integrate into anti-trafficking curriculum for middle school students in Oakland and into counseling sessions at group homes in the Bay Area. The film has been showcased to the San Francisco School Board committee, members of the San Francisco Board ofSupervisors, the District Attorney and hundreds at an event to raise funds tosupport survivors.
