VERONICA'S Voice is a grassroots organization founded in 2000 by Kristy Childs, a survivor of commercial sexual exploitation, trauma and drug addiction. The initial funding was provided through the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health Systems.
I'm not happy with this series as they didn't show the faces of legal US and Canadian citizens that are human trafficking victims of all ages, gender and race. Instead they just increased the public's view that this happens to illegal aliens - they show the faces as Mexicans and Asian women. Doing that the public thinks so sad and then puts it out of their head. The public needs to see this is happening in their back yards..to their neighbors!
Leave a comment for the team of writers that produced this series and let them know the true faces of human trafficking: http://www.kansascity.com/105/story/1633622.html I left a comment but they deleted it. If more people leave comments they won't be able to delete all of them!
