Laurin Crosson, Founder & Director of Rockstarr Ministries says “My story is graphic, and yet sharing it has become healing for me and those who are in a hopeless place. Individuals find a balm of hope and spark of courage for their own lives. Others feel called to join me in my quest to serve those who need to be reconnected with their personhood and belief that their lives can be so much more. I am not ashamed to share the details of the lowest points in my life and the struggles I faced, nor the methods I employed to survive. They have brought me to a place of understanding the desperate place that others find themselves in. Survival was the name of the game. I am not ashamed because I found a silver thread of belief that my life could and would be different and held onto it until I found the evidence to back up that hope. Individuals who are living and working in the life have trusted me and borrowed that thread of hope until they found their own courage and I have assisted stars, strippers, and prostitutes.
Over the last several years, awareness of sex trafficking has continued to increase and its insidious prevalence has been documented to be widespread throughout the world. The women, children, and men taken into this trade are often lured or tricked into servitude through lies, deceit, manipulation, abuse, and very typically against their will. Such actions leave victims devoid of self-esteem or self-worth, yearning for a sense of purpose and justice in their circumstances. It is here that the ministry of Jesus Christ, unlike anything else, can bridge the gap between what is and what may be. Through the compassion and lessons taught by Jesus, every victim can find hope, courage, and the strength to recognize their destiny as a child of God.

Christine McDonald is an internationally recognized author and speaker on the social injustices facing underserved populations today. As a survivor of human trafficking, homelessness, and addiction, Christine- now blind as a result of a disease that forced her to choose between her unborn child and her eyesight- is on a mission to bring justice and awareness to the forefront of social change through education and unconditional love.
Christine began life in a small town in Oklahoma, in a very dark and painful household. She felt safest using her own survival skills to live on the streets and ran away for the last time when she was just 15. This began her 17 year journey of homelessness, which comprised of being sex trafficked, drug addiction, prostitution, 103 arrests and 7 prison stints. Finally ready for a better life and barely able to read or write, Christine began a new journey of exiting the life of the streets, only to be challenged again.
Completely blind and eternally vigilant, today Christine uses her life experience and education to work as an advocate for trafficking victims, the homeless, recovering addicts, ex-offenders and disabled populations. Currently living in St Louis, Missouri, Christine is a proud mom of her 7 year old son and practices a loving open adoption with her daughter’s adoptive parents in nearby Kirkwood. Christine is the author of Cry Purple: One Woman’s Journey through Homelessness, Crack Addiction and Prison to Blindness, Motherhood and Happiness and is the founder of www.ChristinesVision.org. She has also been featured locally and nationally on various media outlets, including NBC, CBS, FOX and NPR and sits on multiple local, state-wide and international level boards and committees.
Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery. It involves controlling a person through force, fraud, or coercion to exploit the victim for forced labor, sexual exploitation, or both. 122 products have been identified to have forced/child labor and the beauty industry is no exception.
