Survivor Healing, Advising and Dedicated to Empowerment (S.H.A.D.E) Movement is a survivor-led, survivor based consultancy/advocacy anti-human trafficking organization. Within the Abolitionist community, S.H.A.D.E Movement is a unique entity in that it is 100 percent staffed, and run, by survivors of sexual exploitation/human trafficking. We believe that it is necessary to provide survivors of trafficking with a safe life space where their voices, ideas, and skills can be nurtured, increased, and fortified in a compassionate manner. S.H.A.D.E Movement effectively delivers to survivors powerful leadership techniques so that the learned skills can be used to strengthen goals, dreams, and destinies. Survivor Leadership is of paramount importance in regard to creating positive change and empowerment within the anti-trafficking movement, as well as in the world at-large.
