Call in to speak with the host
Laura Urenda is the founder of a faith based outreach and support group for women in the sex industry in the Detroit Metro Area called My Sister Song. Laura’s parents were simple people from the south who left the treachery of the mines to move to Detroit to build a better life. However, her father’s alcoholism created an atmosphere of unpredictability and fear that would set her on a course of destruction for many years…Drugs, alcohol, dysfunctional relationships, a broken marriage, and a glimpse into the secret world of the sex industry.
Little did Laura know that God had a plan that would take her pain and struggle and use it to help others to find their way. Laura goes into strip clubs with gifts for the girls containing a contact card for help and a variety of resources. She inspires women in the sex industry to break free of their chains, and spreads awareness of human trafficking that is happening in our own back yards. People are under the impression that women are involved in the sex industry for easy money, but there is nothing easy about the money they make. My Sister Song believes that every woman has a story that matters and their story is a song that has the potential to impact others for generations.
It's good to talk.
