On this episode of the Exodus Cry Podcast, Benjamin Nolot sits down with Jessica Kay to discuss the intricacies of trafficking and the ways in which the illusion of choice influences a victim’s perspective on their state of abuse. Jessica is a survivor of domestic violence, homelessness and trafficking. She was trafficked by her “boyfriend” after six months of manipulation and love bombing. While in “the life,” Jessica fully believed prostitution was her choice. It wasn’t until she escaped that she recognized the coercion, abuse and manipulation.
Now, Jessica is a Clinical Social Work Intern for A Better Tomorrow and is a Survivor Consultant for UNITAS. She is a member of the Nevada Coalition to Prevent the Exploitation of Children and is a member of the Steering Committee for the Nevada Policy Council on Human Trafficking. Jessica was also named as one of Las Vegas’ 40 under 40.
