Let’s help Cyntoia Brown

Usually, people do not want to talk about Sex Trafficking, because it is hard to hear the truth, but I believe that we should speak up, and help victims like Cyntoia.  She was sex trafficked by the age of 16, drugged, and abused several times. Sold to a 43-year-old man who Cyntoia killed after being consequently abused. Even though she was a minor, the Tennesse court punished her with the life sentence.

Filmmaker Dan Birman tells her story in the documentary “Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story” which talks about her brutal life.
