Becca Stevens


Inner Work of Story

For 20 years, Thistle Farms has helped to heal, empower, and employ women survivors of sex trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Named a CNN Hero, founder Becca Stevens is changing the nation’s narrative about this population of survivors through the simple message that “love heals.” In this conversation, she shares how story serves both as an act of personal empowerment as well as radical social change. "Whether we are pouring wax for the candles we light for the next woman finding her way home, sharing fabrics from Indonesia that tell the story of our sisters’ journey to financial freedom, or serving a cup of hot justice tea to a sojourner who visits the Thistle Stop Cafe, this work is about one thing: women’s freedom.”
