We are a community of women who have survived trafficking, prostitution and addiction.
Atlanta is the No. 1 city in the U.S. with the highest sex economy income of $290 million per year. BeLoved Atlanta is the only two-year residential home and program in Atlanta, Ga for adult women affected by sexual exploitation.
At #DMSTLobbyDay! Survivors deserve to feel safe, loved, cared for and empowered. #enditmovement #youarebeloved
"Like anyone, trafficking survivors want to be recognized for their personal and professional contributions and accomplishment. Like any former victim will tell you, it's not enough to survive a terrible trauma, because no individual should be defined or pigeonholed by the worst thing that ever happened to them.
Should you feel compassion? Yes. Compassion is a great place to start, but it will count for so much more when channeled into an action that enables trafficking survivors to achieve what they're really after: purpose, competence and independence." - Evelyn Chumbow (survivor & activist) #survivor #lead #enditmovement 📷 by @kathrynmccrary

Grateful for our sisters at @thistlefarms! It's always such an encouragement to share time with the survivors in their program, for their residents to cheer ours on + to see how this model of "a community of restoration" is thriving in cities across the U.S. #loveheals #beloved #enditmovement
