It seems that it’s only happening overseas // But then I turn to see what’s staring back at me... // I’ve seen her face somewhere // A mother, a sister, a daughter, a woman, which represents queen //
These lyrics by Corie P. unveil the haunting truth that human trafficking happens not only around the world but around the corner. This hidden crime is all around us, if only we have eyes to see.
See, Austin is changing but there’s one thing that remains for sure // Exploitation like a black shadow is still traveling door, to door, to door // Beautiful people are being ignored //
But there’s hope! As we link arms across the city we can build a place where traffickers cannot exploit the vulnerable and where survivors can truly heal.
Then we walked... // We walked with her because we recognized that just knowing isn’t enough //
