For nearly 6 years, Rebecca Bender was trapped in the dark and violent world of sex trafficking. When she finally escaped, she knew she wanted to fight to change culture and offer hope to other survivors.
Rebecca is not only a human-trafficking survivor, but also a wife, mother of 4, speaker, author, thought leader, educator, and advocate. As the CEO of the Rebecca Bender Initiative and founder of Elevate Academy, she is passionate about training and inspiring both leaders and organizations to challenge the culture around them.
“It’s hard to celebrate the redemption if you don’t talk about the gravity of what you came from.” —Rebecca Bender
