For individuals who have lived through the deeply traumatic experience of human trafficking, feeling safe again likely seems impossible. But helping survivors feel safe is something Julie Palmer has dedicated herself t0. With support from Rich Products, she and the staff at the PATH Enrichment Center are providing the kinds of services that enrich the lives of survivors and restore hope.

She’s since gone on to give her own talks on the realities of human trafficking, like in 2018 when she spoke at TedxBuffalo.

Buffalo is not immune to the tragedy of human trafficking. And she was motivated to do something about it.
