Human Trafficking – is it really happening in Berks County, PA? YES !!! Andrea McHenry is the Executive Director of F.R.E.E. which stands for Freedom and Restoration for Everyone Enslaved. Andrea was a volunteer with this organization since it began in 2009.   When the founding director re-located Andrea took the reins in this crusade to provide assistance to the victims and end Human Trafficking. Andrea says, if we don’t shine a spotlight on the issue and continue to talk about it, the business of human trafficking will continue to thrive.

When allowed to operate under the radar more and more victims fall prey to sex trafficking. Listen to her story and find out why it is important to her and how you can participate. It is through the work done by Andrea and her team of volunteers that this business sees the light of day and more are made aware of the human consequence.
