Why did This Is My Story, Inc. begin?
Our Executive Director and founder, Jessica Neely, is a survivor of human trafficking and a former adult film actress and madam. During her speaking engagements over the past year she realized the necessity for the elevation of human trafficking awareness as well as the need to work toward the eradication of the easy access to digital pornography. It was also through these experiences that she realized the urgent need to give individuals a place to share their survivor stories.
How long has your organization existed?
This Is My Story, Inc. was founded in early 2017 as an expansion to the efforts our founder was making in the advancement of human trafficking awareness. Prior to founding our nonprofit organization, Jessica Neely traveled the country speaking at events and continues to do so today.
