Survivor Led Organizations
Ending the Game is a survivor-designed curriculum intended to educate on the psychology of sex trafficking exploitation. Trauma bonds, identity disruption, and PTSD are evaluated with the goal of trauma-informed recovery and support. A great resource for victim service providers, or those asking the question "why don't they just leave?"
The Survivor Alliance is a networking and empowerment organization by and for trafficking survivors. By providing learning, leadership, and engagement opportunities, survivors can find a way to transform trauma into treasured knowledge and expertise. Serving as community leaders allows survivors to leave a legacy that is greater than the traumas endured. Empowerment, like freedom, is an individual and collective journey.
