Front Line Friday!

Today is Front Line Friday and I have been asked by some of you to share my story, how I came to be involved in the fight against sex trafficking in America. So, in response to your inquiries, our front line guest is yours truly. I will keep to the general format of the day, answering some of the same questions I have asked my other guests.

Front Line Friday!

It's Front Line Friday and I'd like to introduce you to Jeff Shaw, the founder of Out of Darkness.

They don't want to draw attention to it, because then they'd have to accept responsibility for their part in it. However, last night I had the privilege of hearing from several men who aren't only talking about it, but they've dedicated their lives to fighting it. Nor For Sale hosted an event with men in mind called Men: A Solution to Modern-Day Slavery. Other than state director, Emily Laney, doing a brief introduction, the entire evening consisted [...]
