Human Trafficking Victim Works With Dignity Health In San Francisco To Help Others
ABC News

A fundraiser took place in San Francisco on Friday to help solve a growing problem – human trafficking. And as we found out, one of the leaders in the fight was a victim herself years ago, who’s now training others to recognize those who need help.

“I was lured away from home by a man I met at my local shopping mall when I was 14 years old,” said Holly Gibbs. She had dreams of being a star. The man promised to take her to Hollywood.

“But within hours of running away, I was forced into prostitution in Atlantic City, New Jersey,” she said.

It lasted only two days before she was arrested and then given help. But many aren’t so lucky.
