No little girl dreams of becoming a sex slave when she grows up. That’s why Tina braves dangerous streets in the middle of the night to reach out to teens that are trapped. “I’m a survivor of sex trafficking,” Tina says, “and quite honestly, nobody did this for me.”
It takes Tina just ten seconds to let a sex slave know that someone cares about their plight and can help them escape. She does it on the streets of Washington, D.C. at night. Walking casually along, she hands off a simple trinket that contains a telephone hotline number. It’s a covert encounter, and Tina works hard to blend in so that traffickers won’t become suspicious.
