Jessica is a true "lived experience expert."
She has survived 10 years of commercial, sexual exploitation as well as having spent over 10 years of advocacy work helping victims escape and recover.
We recently had Jessica on our Podcast, 'Weekly Wins and Losses' where she shared how she was sexually exploited and trafficked throughout the United States. She was forced to see different parts of the country as her pimp moved her around the US.
Then suddenly her face lights up and she says... "My dream is to travel in an RV and just drive drive drive - and see God's country"
Ask yourself... isn't this just incredible?
Think about the depth of trauma someone would have had to experience by being trafficked throughout the US yet at the same time, still courageously open up to rewriting her story by seeing the country again, but this time... ON HER OWN TERMS.
I can't help but always do my very best to help set people up to Win.
Women in particular are the shock absorbers of life. They do unpaid labor and they regulate the community around them. Women do much of this without support, and it saddens me deeply.
Women have equal value, not less!
So, this is my effort to come alongside ALL WOMEN...
RAISING YOU UP AND CELEBRATING YOU FOR THE GOODNESS THAT YOU ARE.
Celebrating women by RALLYING AROUND JESSICA MIDKIFF.
