Global Activism: “Selah Freedom” Helps Chicago Sexual Slavery Survivor Tell Her Story
The recent criminal justice reform movement has transformed our understanding of so-called “prostitution.” Law enforcement and policymakers are evolving in identifying people in sex work as victims of sex trafficking and sexual slavery. Selah Freedom, a Chicago and Sarasota-based not-for-profit, provides safety for sex trafficking victims in the United States. “Selah” in Hebrew means “to pause, rest and reflect.” The group spreads awareness, and provides shelter and rehabilitation for survivors. For our Global Activism segment, Selah Freedom President and CEO, Elizabeth Fisher, returns to update us on her work. She’s joined by “Julianne”, a Chicago-area sexual slavery survivor and Selah Freedom survivor graduate.
