Susan Munsey’s mission to rescue women from sex trafficking is personal. At 16, she was abused, threatened and forced to sell her body to support her trafficker. She was arrested for prostitution and escaped. Today, Munsey’s nonprofit, GenerateHope, offers long-term housing and trauma-informed therapy, education, medical care and vocational support -- a safe place for survivors of sex trafficking to heal and build new lives. Munsey’s program has served more than 100 women since 2009.
