The You Matter! podcast was developed in 2019 by the Department of Public Safety to inform the NYU community about resources that are available to victims, both on and off campus, and to give first-hand experiences of both victims and those in the community who assist them. To contact the You Matter! team, email us at youmatter@nyu.edu. You can also call Public Safety’s Victims Services Unit at 212.998.2222.

In this episode, Karen speaks with Theresa Flores, a survivor and author who travels the United States to share her story of being trafficked and used as a sex slave as a teenager, all while living under her parents roof in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit, Michigan.
