I am very privileged to have met Raven Kaliana, who is an enormously inspiring woman. Below is a link to an article, published in the Guardian last weekend. It is an interview about her history and healing as a survivor of child sexual exploitation and trafficking, her activism work, and puppetry.
If you are a survivor, please take care when reading as it may be triggering.
Also, the next screening of Hooray for Hollywood, her autobiographical puppet film (for adults) will take place on 26th October at the Feminism in London Conference. Raven will host the screening and it will follow with a Q&A and panel discussion with charities working on human trafficking and child sexual exploitation issues.
