Advocacy, Awareness, and Prevention of Child Sex Trafficking with Jessica Muñoz & Tammy Bitanga - Episode 32

The first in a 3-part series addressing sex trafficking and the work being done by Ho`ōla Nā Pua. Jessica Munoz, founder and president, and Tammy Bitanga, Community Outreach Coordinator, join Behavioral Health Today's Dr. Graham Taylor as leaders in the anti-trafficking movement in the Hawaiian Islands. Tammy shares her own story of survival and rise out of her circumstances of early childhood abuse and how it drives her to do the work with Ho`ōla Nā Pua. Today, Ho`ōla Nā Pua has developed their own crisis hotline, mentoring program, and developing Hawaii’s first residential treatment center for children who have been trafficked.
