Elisa Morales is the former Spokesperson for the Central New York Anti-Trafficking Task Force and the Safe Harbor Initiative of Onondaga County, New York. A survivor of domestic and sexual violence, she learned the hard way that some of the most beautiful things emerge from the ugliest of situations. Ms. Morales believes that we were not put on this earth to see through each other, but rather to see each other through. Fighting trafficking—one person at a time—she moves mountains when someone’s freedom is at stake.
“Modern-day slavery does exist. The invisible people walk amongst us every day. I have the honor of crossing paths with them to let them know that there is help and hope.”
