My Life My Choice

My Life My Choice is a survivor-led pioneer in the fight to end the commercial sexual exploitation of children. 

My Life My Choice’s fervent conviction is that no person should be bought or sold. It is our daily fight — our strategic and urgent endeavor. Our holistic, battle-tested approach is grounded in survivor experiences of those who have lived the ugly realities of exploitation and come back fierce, wise, and strong. We serve as a model for communities across the country set on changing not only lives, but the structural inequities that give rise to trafficking and sexual exploitation. We know that every survivor’s story comes from a place of strength. And ultimately, it is that strength that powers a better future for us all.
