“How One Survivor is Creating a Path of Healing for Other Women”
Louise Allison – P.A.T.H.
Welcome to the “Awaken Our Lives with David Trotter” podcast. Although I wear many hats in this season of life, I’m finding that Social Transformation Tour Guide may fit the best. As a filmmaker, writer, speaker, and marketer, I’m drawn to social justices issues that need more awareness in our world. Ultimately, I’m passionate about inspiring people to take action in a cause that capture’s their heart.
As many of you know, my current focus is on the IN PLAIN SIGHT campaign to help sex trafficking in the United States. We are working in concert with Abolition International, and the resources will be released by Word Entertainment in the Fall of 2014. As part of this project, I’m co-executive producing a documentary film and music album as well as co-authoring a 31 day group study guide. In the process, I’m meeting many leaders who are working to eradicate this issue, and I want to introduce you to some of them in the weeks ahead.
TODAY’S GUEST: Louise Allison – P.A.T.H.
We just returned from a three day trip to Little Rock, Arkansas, where our team was filming the IN PLAIN SIGHT documentary, and I want to provide you with the full conversation I had with Louise Allison – the founder of PATH – Partners Against Trafficking Humans – an aftercare home for survivors of sex trafficking housed in an undisclosed location in Little Rock. Having run away as a young teenager, Louise was picked up by a pimp and trafficked for a number of years. As you hear her story unfold, you’ll start to understand her deep passion to help other women who have experienced something similar.
The audio you’re about to hear was captured on a simple recording device placed next to me while our video team filmed her professionally for the documentary.
