Meet Sarah Thompson*, a remarkable 23-year-old woman who not only survived the dark world of human trafficking but has also dedicated her life to helping others in Washington State who were once involved in this heinous crime.

Sarah's journey began when she herself fell victim to human trafficking at the young age of 14. With immense courage and resolute determination, she managed to escape her captors and rebuild her life.

Once free, Sarah took as many classes as possible in human services and social work to enable herself to help others like her who were able to escape the clutches of human traffickers. She also works closely with a group of people who help people escape human trafficking.

Having experienced the horrors firsthand, Sarah understands the trauma and challenges faced by survivors of human trafficking. She founded a non-profit organization that provides a safe and supportive environment for those looking to break free from the chains of exploitation.

The organization offers counseling services, educational programs, and job training to help survivors reintegrate into society and regain control of their lives. If the person is underage, the group helps them contact a guardian or enter an appropriate care situation with a loving family. Sarah's work has had a profound impact on the lives of countless individuals who have been rescued from the clutches of human trafficking.

Her relentless advocacy and tireless efforts have empowered survivors and raised awareness about the pervasive issue in Washington State. Through her inspiring story and unwavering commitment, Sarah has become a beacon of hope for those still trapped in the darkness, proving that overcoming the unimaginable and emerging stronger on the other side is possible.
