If we don’t understand their methods, we can’t —

Put a stop to traffickers’ evil tricks.

When it comes to such a horrifying topic, it can be tempting to look the other way. It’s hard to fathom how such things happen, especially in our own neighborhoods, and hard to grasp how we, in our everyday lives, could ever do anything to help.

But the reality is, the number of girls being sold in our state alone is staggering. It’s time to take a closer look and learn the warning signs. The Freedom Experience is just that — a closer look. As you walk through seven different rooms, a narrated, immersive experience will educate you about seven different aspects of human trafficking, from common vulnerabilities to rescue and recovery efforts.

The more you understand traffickers’ nasty schemes and recognize the warning signs, the better equipped you are to stop this atrocity in its tracks and keep vulnerable girls safe.

Learn the signs, see the suffering, protect the vulnerable.

A few dollars and a few minutes add up to one big step towards making sure every woman lives in freedom.

Your walk through The Freedom Experience makes her steps toward healing more likely to succeed.

Divas who win helped me break free from the sex trade. Their prayers and support have given me freedom from the bondages that come from survival sex work and addiction. Absolutely love these ladies and their mission.

Dani

As a survivor, there have been many days that I wasn’t sure how to take the next step but DIVAS showed me that I’m not alone in my experience and we are like an army of women that encourage each other and have each others’ backs.

Recovery has afforded me a life I could have never imagined! The ability to not only get better myself but to serve others by sharing experiences, strength, and hope that they can too! I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a peer to walk along side others in their walk today!

Thank you for checking out DIVAS Who Win-

I’m so glad you’re here.

Hi, I’m Chanda, the founder of DIVAS Who Win. If human trafficking seems so heart-wrenching and hopeless you’d rather look the other way, I understand. I know the horrors of human trafficking firsthand. And after diving into the work of helping survivors, I know how staggering the need is.

But please hear me when I say, our efforts to make a difference are working!

Based on my own experience and the transformation of women around me, I have no doubt that women recover better when they do so together. That is why I opened Freedom Center, and why I am so passionate about opening Freedom House. Each month, an average of 150+ women visit Freedom Center, our non-residential facility. They don’t just drop in on occasion — they visit an average of 4-6 times per month and stay an average of 60-90 minutes each time they’re here. Everything we do at DIVAS revolves around a community effort to walk alongside women as they pursue wholeness and freedom.

So many women are hurting and alone. I’d like to change that. Through the grace of God and with your help, I am confident we can.

Putting a stop to trafficking atrocities starts by simply learning the signs.
