win the battle to rescue and support victims of trafficking requires the creative resources of an entire community.

From exploring safe havens for a teenage victim who has been exploited through prostitution to working with corporations that employ thousands of laborers, Opal uses her background and experience to find creative solutions to stop trafficking.
