Letter from our Founder
Welcome to the movement that celebrates women's freedom. We are a growing community committed to the truth that love is the most powerful force for change in the world. We are made up of circles around the world of survivors, donors, volunteers, residents, graduates, producers, social media advocates, and strangers who come together to practice hospitality and exercise our economic power and voice. At the center of this circle are women who have survived lives of trafficking, addiction and prostitution. Thank you for joining us, we need one another to heal. #loveheals.
Peace and love,
