We launch into one of our biggest conversations yet on this episode -- racism and human trafficking. Tanya Gould shares about her experiences as a black woman and what that has meant, not only for her own experience as a survivor of domestic sex trafficking, but for the experience of other survivors she’s worked with. Tanya is the founder of Identifiable Me, a non-profit that helps move those who have been victimized by sexual violence towards self-discovery and their life’s purpose.She leads us as we begin to talk about the various components of vulnerability and exploitation that demonstrate racism within human trafficking. Tune in to hear how mental health services, the job search and implicit bias all affect the lives of those vulnerable to and exploited by traffickers and what drivers can do about it as a part of your everyday job.
