This is Edie Rhea. She is a human trafficking survivor, and she is brave. At the age of 10, Edie was forced into a life of prostitution that continued for 7 years. Enduring fear, shame and regret, she persevered - turning her anguish into advocacy for victims of human trafficking and sexual abuse. Edie is priceless.
The message behind the "I AM PRICELESS' mural is inspired by Edie, and countless other survivors and anti-trafficking advocates who extend their hands to help others. A mural dedication will be held today @ 3:30 on the corner of Cass & Morgan, followed by The @juniorleagueoftampa hosting "Think Globally, Act Communally" with special guest Becca Stevens @tampatheatre. Free event and open to the public.
For those that feel trapped in the game or know someone who is, call the NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING HOTLINE: 1-888-373-7888. .
