The last couple months, I've spent so much time listening to podcasts and reading articles about the disparity of human trafficking. That weight can get to you; the stories that have left deep scars on women who have been used and thrown away were evidently strong enough to leave me with a sense of darkness. With such great acts of injustice, it's difficult to remember that light overpowers the darkness...but that is the truth.
Although this series was shot as an artistic representation of the freedom and redemption that can be restored in victims of trafficking, it's a wonderful reminder that hope is not lost.
"It's all changed. I feel like I have two wings on my back. I am free and I love it.
-Katya, a victim of trafficking rescued and brought to The A21 Campaign's Greece safehouse
