Victims of human trafficking and prostitution often get stuck in a downward spiral of sexual exploitation, drug use and violence. And believe it or not, it’s happening in our own back yards.
But one woman, who lived as a prostitute for more than two decades, is bringing attention to the problem.
A WGN camera crew took a ride with Brenda Myers-Powell and her Dreamcatcher Foundation as they reached out to the victims of this dangerous life.
Since we interviewed Myers-Powell for this story, the Dreamcatcher Foundation has helped five women enter rehab.
