Omaha church begins raising funds for shelter to serve survivors of human trafficking

From Nebraska-

Lori Wright said she was 13 years old when she snuck out the window of a boarding school and started running through the cornfields of Indiana.

When she finally saw a sign for a truck stop, she said, she had hope. Someone could give her a ride to her father’s home in Nashville, Tennessee, she thought.

She said she didn’t know then that the truck driver who gave her a ride would be the first of many men who would use her and pass her around for sex.

By 16, Wright was married. By 17, she said, her husband had sold her to a pimp for drugs. For 25 years, Wright said, she was trafficked for sex. She said she lost count of how many times she was raped and beaten.
