In Light of Epstein Suicide, Will America Experience a Turning Point Against Sex Slavery?

Updated: Aug 15, 2019

Jeff Epstein is dead. But it took a monster to give America the wakeup call it needed to see that sex trafficking/slavery is an epidemic in our country and we need to find a solution immediately before thousands of other victims become prey to the horrors of this sickness.



Hopefully, the circumstances surrounding the Jeff Epstein case and his recent suicide will herald a much needed turning point as far as how our culture views sex trafficking and the lives that are ruined as a result of being victims. We now have an opportunity to turn horror into hope and focus on the many organizations in our country that have established programs and rehabilitative support and options for victims to get help and stay safe whenever they need it.


It is important to note that in reality, every day is a day in which we must focus and fight this growing, tragic phenomenon, and not wait for headlines to report yet another sex trafficking operation sting. That is why Selah Freedom operates a hotline 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every single day of the year: 1-888-8-FREE-ME.



For eight years, Selah Freedom has been confronting the issue of sex trafficking and we’re upheld as the model for how to effectively bring solutions to survivors of sex trafficking & exploitation.  We give survivors a chance to do just that. Women in our programs have an opportunity to dream again; to discover who it is they were created to be. What began as the grassroots initiative of women from across the country to be a voice for the voiceless, has quickly transformed into a thriving organization with four foundational programs: Advocacy & Awareness, Prevention, Outreach, and Residential. Selah Freedom closely partners with law enforcement, legislators, and influential leaders to not only shed light on the staggering statistics, but we are working together to change those statistics by changing lives! 


Among other things, we provide Residential Programming for survivors of sex trafficking that includes a personalized educational plan, job placement, trauma therapy, life skills, medical and legal assistance, and holistic restorative care. As we bring light into the darkness of sex trafficking, we see victims transformed into survivors.




How can you help?

Pledge to actively make a difference in the lives of human trafficking survivors by donating to help disrupt human trafficking networks that rob people of their freedom. Selah Freedom is a good way to do so and together – with your help – we can continue to lead the nation in providing solutions to eradicate exploitation.
