This week I am so honored to introduce you to someone I'm thrilled to have on who I met through a mutual friend and former guest on the show, John Paul Rice! When John reached out about doing this interview, I knew this would be an amazing show full of value! Joining us this week is Tracy Minchin - Founder and Director of ‘The Ruby Organization’!
In their words: “The Ruby Organization is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Cabarrus County, North Carolina. In coordination with other area service providers, we offer resources and mentoring for women seeking to leave the sex industry or are victims of human trafficking. We provide awareness training for the community and have a field team working with women in area strip clubs and the sex industry to offer hope and opportunity.”
One of the many reasons I’m excited to speak to Tracy today is because one of the most frequent questions I get asked is, “What can I do to get involved in this fight against human sex trafficking?” Hopefully this episode inspires you to walk away with amazing insight on how to research organizations that exist in your area while also giving you some tools on what questions to ask and what to look for in your own quest to take action.
The other reason why I’m excited to have Tracy on is because we are going to talk about an element of sex trafficking that we haven’t covered in depth often enough on this show - adult sex trafficking. If you’ve been following our podcasts, you have heard many stories of the horrific things that happen to children when they are born or sold into these horrific systems. But what happens to that child down the road if they never leave or escape these systems? What happens to the naive and vulnerable adult women who weren’t born into these systems but get promised money, a lavish lifestyle, and fame and fortune, only to be thrown into a strip club to end up being trafficked and abused? The adult entertainment industry is a cesspool of human trafficking, and we should all be so grateful that someone like Tracy volunteers her time to rescue women out of these abusive systems.
