Thank you for taking the time to listen to our President, BilliJoy’s, story on Ashley Easter’s podcast. To follow her personal story, visit

BilliJoy’s Top Three Suggestions for Christian Communities on Sex Trafficking:

  1. Educate yourself and your community — be a voice, not an echo
  2. Support anti-trafficking organizations
  3. Support/help survivors through their healing journey
Below is the info for Kick at Darkness, Inc, the nonprofit she started after fighting for her own freedom from sex trafficking as a child.




We believe  no survivor (of sexual assault, domestic violence, sex trafficking, child abuse, or hate crimes)should ever have to pay for their own healing. 


  • KICK: the darkness down, shattering the shame of sexual assault and interpersonal violence
  • INSPIRE: the community to join forces and provide a way of recovery for survivors
  • CREATE: roads of change where survivors can safely re-enter the world as they heal
  • KEEP: providing ways for organizations that help survivors to get their tools and information to the survivors and the community
  • AWARENESS: building—a bridge throughout the community to end sexual assault and interpersonal violence
  • TRANSFORMATION: of the culture’s erroneous mindset about sexual assault and interpersonal violence
  • DARE: to start by believing and reach survivors at the start of their journeys as well as down the road
  • ARM-IN-ARM: collaborate with other organizations (local and national) to create change
  • RESPOND: by helping to teach appropriate responses to sexual assault and interpersonal violence
  • KALEIDOSCOPE: of all survivors—no matter age, race, creed, orientation, status, or gender
  • NURTURE: hope and help for survivors by fighting for legislature and policy change
  • END: victim blaming and shaming by opening the community’s eyes to survivors
  • STAND: with survivors and allies to change the world
  • SUPPORT: survivors through their healing journey—however long it takes



  • The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker
    • Learn how to listen to your gut and be safe
    • God gave us fear to save our lives, too often we edit it to make others feel better
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder by Marsha Linehan
    • Don’t let the name of this book disarm you
    • This book is a skills book used to teach survivors and their family members, how to deal with distressing situations (such as memories or having to testify)
    • The workbook teaches easy-to-grasp concepts that can make a HUGE impact on survivors having hope


    • Fights for legislation changes nationally
    • Has community teaching & awareness programs
    • Stays on top of news across our nation in the war on sex trafficking
    • Houses rescued girls from trafficking
    • Teaches them home life and how to be part of a family again
    • Provides trauma-informed therapy and skills
    • LGBTQ+ teens who come out to their parents are highly likely to be kicked out of their homes the DAY they come out
      • Those kids are almost all scooped up by traffickers within a week of being on the street
      • No one is looking for those kids; no one cares; their families disowned them because of their beliefs
    • Organizations like help to solve this BEFORE the kids get taken on the street; saving lives
    • This is an AZ org, but nearly every state has a similar one


    • Hotline for crisis and finding a center in your state for advocacy, therapy, and crisis care


    • So many survivors are trafficked in hotel rooms and we have images online of these rooms, but do not know where they are
    • This app allows travelers to take a pic of their room and upload it into a database so survivors can be found and rescued faster
  • ACT!
    • This app has you play a game to learn how to identify human trafficking in real life
