Rebekah Charleston is passionate about the crime of human trafficking. She is the Executive Director of Valiant Hearts, a ministry dedicated to eradicating sexual exploitation. At the age of 17 Rebekah became a victim of sex trafficking when she ran away from home. She remained a victim for more than 10 years with multiple traffickers. She was able to escape when the federal authorities finally became involved.
As a survivor, Rebekah has wisdom to impart and a story that will help give understanding to the crime of human trafficking as well as shed light on what happens here in America. She is an advocate for victims of human trafficking, a consultant with the National Criminal Justice Training Center, a mother, and honors graduate student. Rebekah’s story is one of hope and restoration.
