What happens when women are physically set free from a life style that has taken everything they are away?
Imagine: Your innocence is lost. You know more about the seamier side of life than anyone should. All your firsts were taken away, especially if you were trafficked as a child or young woman. That awakening sense of first love, your first kiss, your ability to give yourself to someone in innocence with joy. Gone.
When a woman is able to leave “the life” she will have a unique set of needs: housing, job skills, relationship skills, and counseling. But what she will need more than all of that is acceptance and a sense of normalcy from those around her.
Please join us as Ayn Dubois shares her insights in a talk about the needs of former trafficking victims.
Ayn Fixter DuBois is a wife of 33 years and mother to three children: a daughter who graduated summa cum laude from college in Mortuary Sciences; a son in the Marines; and a daughter who goes to the School of the Arts in Tacoma.

She has climbed to the top of the highest peak in New York State and has hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. She has been in every state in the Union except Maine and Hawaii. She is a combat-trained medic.
