Telling the Stories of today's advocates against exploitation and human trafficking.
MISSION Who They Are is an advocacy platform that tells the stories of today's leaders of the anti-trafficking movement around the globe. From non profit founders, to social entrepreneurs, to the men and women banging on the doors of congress demanding change, we leverage the power of storytelling to stir up awareness as well as celebrate and support these modern day heroes. We also seek to foster deeper conversation as to why in the 21st Century we are still fighting exploitation by challenging some of our cultural norms such as fast fashion and the current sex industry. Our desire is to help facilitate the elimination of modern slavery around the world. Everyone deserves opportunity and freedom.
ABOUT Who They Are was Founded by social entrepreneur, Elena Baxter. Prior to launching Who They Are, In 2012 Elena Co-Founded Conscious Magazine in response to craving a more inspiring media platform. With a passion for honest media, Conscious was created to report on local and global change, social justice and culture. During her endeavor to reshape the media landscape through conscious journalism, Elena learned about the harsh injustice of exploitation and Human Trafficking. Along the way she met many individuals that were either victims themselves, or dedicating their lives to fighting this crime. Their passion and bravery coupled with the truth that this is a human-first epidemic, sparked the desire in Elena to pursue Who They Are and join the movement to end human trafficking. She hopes to see slavery eliminated within her lifetime.
