The Dreamcatcher Foundation: Brenda Myers-Powell

Monday, October 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Co-founder and executive director of the Dreamcatcher Foundation, Brenda Myers-Powell was a product of human trafficking at the age of 14, when she escaped an abusive home life and learned to navigate the streets of Chicago. Living through physical, mental, and sexual abuse not only made her numb to the adversities she faced, they also equipped her to survive as a testament for the young women she was to mentor out of the life. Having suffered from continued abuse and drug addiction over 25 years as a teenage and adult prostitute, Myers-Powell educates on the perils of human trafficking with a raw edge not for the faint at heart, and provides perspective for women to reach new levels of accomplishments for their futures.
