Journalists struggle with reporting on sex and labor trafficking and how to better frame the stories.  The language in the anti-trafficking world, specifically, use of the word “rescue” is examined when Glickstein interviews Becky Owens-Bullard, Project Director of the Denver Anti-Trafficking Alliance (DATA). Owens-Bullard says It’s time we take off the “rescuer’s” cape and elevate our language around anti-trafficking work to the trauma-informed, victim-centered place that it should be.” Read  “Take off the cape: Why using the word rescue is harmful to anti-trafficking efforts” in the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault and listen to the full interview.
