Instagram Public Photos with #sextrafficking

A note handed to me after my presentation in charlottesville last week by a young woman who slipped backstage afterwards. it reads: “dear jodi, if i can’t actually say this, i have written it down: i wanted to say thank you for finding and doing the piece on sports events child s*x trafficking. i was one. thank you for finding that world, as hard as it was. thank you for not turning your eyes away.” she left before i read the note, through tears.

friends in portland, maine, please come to my presentation at the merrill auditorium tomorrow night, wednesday march 13, at 7:00. i will show the work on human trafficking that she experienced firsthand, as well as other photographs and stories from my 3 decades as a national geographic photographer.

one of our partners here at rapha house was able to introduce our work to skrillex (@skrillex ), a well known dj.
he loved hearing about rapha house, what we stand for, and of course, our freedom bracelets!
who is in your sphere of influence? who can you tell about the exciting work of rapha house?

{image description: a tweet by nbc4 columbus says “skylar williams, osu mansfield student
abducted, killed had complained to police about man. nbc4i.co/2tb0era”. a retweet says “police who do not take the complaints of
women seriously need to be charged as accessories to murder. tired of seeing stories where women ‘do what they're supposed to do,’ only for police to do nothing, resulting in
injury or death for the woman.”}. ~h

17 arrested by our partners in arizona: ⠀
the mesa police department @mesaazpd along with tempe police department @tempepolice, homeland security investigations (hsi) and the attorney general’s office conducted an undercover operation targeting the demand for child s*x crimes and human trafficking. throughout the operational period, officers and undercover detectives placed ads on websites commonly sought out by suspects seeking illegal s*x acts. the suspects solicited and/or brokered deals for various s*x acts and were subsequently arrested. the suspects in this operation ranged in age from 23 to 46 years old.⠀

we at o.u.r. are grateful to have supported our partners in this operation and acknowledge their continuous effort to reduce the demand that fuels child and human s*x trafficking from our community. thank them in a comment below! #endhumantrafficking

Human trafficking is an ongoing issue that many people are not aware of. many innocent individuals are subjected to being enslaved with practically no way of getting out. imagine being in a situation where someone has basically taken ownership of your life? this project that i am honoured to have participated in, was created to help individuals who were victims of human trafficking, to educate the vulnerable as well as aiding survivors in restoring their lives. the colours that you see in the picture are colours that represent my heritage, blue for the philippines and orange for india where the issue of human trafficking is quite prevalent. it truly breaks my heart knowing that my people are going through such hardships with no way of getting out and to have this opportunity to do something to help, brings nothing but joy to my heart. thus, all the money that is being raised will go towards a21.org which is a charity that helps victims of human trafficking to restore their lives and live to the best of their capabilities as well as educating and bringing attention to the ongoing issue that is often silenced.

This right here.... 😭 means more than i can describe.. but please read what was posted to understand why. and if it’s in your heart, support @misssey & taylor as well! i’m in! 💪🏽 #greatwomenlinkup #support #thankful 🙏🏽♥️ #repost @misssey with @get_repost
in honor of women's history month, misssey is shining a light on remarkable women and girls who have had a profound impact in our lives! taylor, juvenile justice life coach, has chosen to highlight @therealdavinajoy510, a bay area independent music artist. “davina joy inspires me because not only is she an independent artist, she also created her own record label and is an amazing entrepreneur. davina uses her music to send a powerful message to her fans about staying authentically you 100% of the time. her lyrics also inspire young women to be strong, independent, and love themselves in a world that’s always telling them ‘you are not enough.’ this woman speaks to me because she has focused on building a legacy of passion, love, and hard work. thank you davina joy. you inspire me to be the woman i am today and the woman i’m becoming.” s*x trafficking often manifests as a form of gender-based violence against women and girls. everyday at misssey, we confront patriarchal oppression through our transformative relationships with girls, supporting their self-determination and resistance to s****l violence and other forms of gender-based oppression. women empowering women is the lifeblood of our organization. support our work to uplift and amplify the power of women and girls by making a donation today: misssey.org/donate (clickable link in our bio!) #misssey #supportsurvivors #endexploitation #humantrafficking #sextrafficking #community #feminist #womenempowerment #women #feminism #womenshistorymonth #socialjustice #charity #nonprofit #oakland #eastbay #bayarea

"you may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know” - william wilberforce
the department of state trafficking in persons report states that the united states is a top “source, transit and destination country for men, women and children–both u.s. citizens and foreign nationals–subjected to forced labor, debt bondage, involuntary servitude and s*x trafficking.”
