Flores is a survivor. As a 15-year-old girl in a well-to-do white suburban neighborhood, she survived two years of being trafficked to men in their 20’s and 30’s. She was an avid track runner, an older sister to three younger brothers, and looked like an all-American girl. No one, not even her parents, knew she was being trafficked for sex.
Flores now speaks publicly about her ordeal and spearheads Save our Adolescents from Prostitution (S.O.A.P.), an organization that addresses human trafficking.

This event is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs at COTC and Ohio State Newark and The College of Social Work at Ohio State Newark.​
