- From International Justice Mission’s Facebook page: “JUSTICE secured in Cambodia: 6 pimps who sold underage girls for sex in large karaoke bar were convicted + sentenced to prison. One of the young survivors bravely gave a testimony of the abuse — as the perpetrators who had once ruled over her listened in the same courtroom, suddenly powerless to silence her.”

Emily founded Stop Traffick Fashion in 2009. She’d been becoming more and more involved in the abolitionist movement, and she decided to start STF as an opportunity to bring together the best of all products made by survivors of trafficking. She hopes her response to trafficking will inspire others to take action, even in a small way. Emily lives in Bend, Oregon, enjoys traveling, and has visited Hagar International and StopStart in Cambodia.
