Welcome to Breaking Free!

Vednita Carter, Founder and President of Breaking Free, shares a powerful message in this TED talk presented at TEDxMinneapolis in July 2015. Carter begins by telling her own powerful story of survival as a high school graduate trafficked in a strip club in Minneapolis. She explains how she got out of the Life and went on to found Breaking Free in October 1996 as a place for women to find safety and refuge. "No woman, no girl, no one deserves to be bought and sold," she declares in her talk. "This is no one's destiny-no one's." Watch Vednita's talk above, and then think about how you would like to support Breaking Free in one or more of the following ways:
