Mimi Chakarova: Sex Slavery from the InsideMomentum and Tides
Mimi bravely posed as a prostitute trying to get a job in Istanbul brothels. She went places no one else could and took many pictures and videos undercover. She says this is her last undercover story because she can't go back. The mafias know who she is and it's too dangerous.
Mimi Chakarova was born in Bulgaria and immigrated to Baltimore at age 13. Later, when she traveled back to Bulgaria, she learned that many of her friends, had been trafficked to other countries as teenagers to become sex slaves. Most of their parents did not know where their daughters went and what happened to them.
Everyone I talk to about modern slavery agrees it's atrocious. Then they ask, "What can I do?" BE A VOICE. Spread awareness by sharing these posts and videos with others. Collectively we can reach thousands of people. Creating awareness and making this an issue in the public mind WILL lead to CHANGE.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
