Telling about your victimization is not easy, but some freedom can come in the process. Understand that victims of violent crimes are not mandated to give you their whole story at your will. Sometimes it will take a lifetime to tell it all....if and when we choose to. I have encountered many who think we owe them information of what happened to us, and this is wrong. Don't see us as broken, see us as true SURVIVORS because that's truly who we are- Amy Leenerts

We Love Louisville and love the Derby as well.
Free2Hope has been busy with new ideas, new ways to get our message out for Derby 2018, that you can't buy women and children in our beautiful city. We have been very intentional in How, Where and What message we have put out to the public. LEO Weekly (dating section) features our ad with the National Human Trafficking Hotline number in the magazine, ALL Transit Authority of River City (TARC) buses (191 of them) have our ad with the National Human Trafficking Hotline number, and now a Billboard with the National Human Trafficking Hotline number on Barry Avenue. We have also had numerous news interviews, several outreaches (continuing) to area businesses putting our cards in the window with the National Human Trafficking Hotline number, and a Pre-Derby Press Conference with the Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear, Jefferson County Attorney Mike O'Connell, Louisville Metro Police Department, Prosecutors and other Survivor Leaders. I hope that you enjoy Derby 2018, but be mindful and keep your eyes open.
If you need the National Human Trafficking Hotline number, chances are that you can probably find it pretty easy this year but if not it's 1-(888) 373-7888 #BeFree #Free2Hope
