what i've been through is not who i am
This documentary brings together a diverse set of experts from juvenile justice, law enforcement, advocates, and services providers to speak about the traumatic effects of commercial sexual exploitation of children. Katrina, a survivor of trafficking, and experts in the field provide a glimpse of a cycle of violence and a broken system. Katrina challenges us to see survivors in terms of their humanity, value and potential―not their past. Once we see exploited children in these terms, we realize our response to their trauma is in critical need of reform.
