Glendene talks with Holly Austin Smith - Survivor Advocate, Author, and Speaker 

Holly is a survivor of child trafficking and an advocate against all forms of human trafficking. 
In November 2011, Holly appeared on the Dr. Oz show to raise awareness for the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST), along with Tina Frundt (founder of Courtney's House), Lisa Ling (American journalist and advocate), and Kevin Perkins (Director of the FBI's Innocence Lost project).  Holly was also featured in the August 2011 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, along with survivors, Carissa Phelps and Minh Dang.
Holly submitted joint testimony to Congress in September 2011 with labor trafficking survivor, Ima Matul (CAST Advisory Caucus member), in support of the reauthorization of the Trafficked Victims Protection Act (TVPRA). She also addressed the Virginia General Assembly in February 2012 in support of Senator Adam Ebbin's bill SB 259, which will require the Board of Education to provide awareness and training materials for local school divisions on human trafficking, including strategies for the prevention of trafficking children.
