Center of Concern has premiered “I Am Miriam,” an anti-human trafficking video that will break your heart.

It tells the story of a 26-year-old Ethiopian woman who underwent sex trafficking as she sought asylum from violence against her family and herself in her homeland.

In addition to the video, a website,, has also been launched to provide educational and other resources for preventing, detecting, and responding to human trafficking through individual and collective efforts.

Dianna M. Ortiz, O.S.U., Editor of the Center’s award-winning Education for Justice (EFJ), who is an internationally recognized champion for human rights, wrote and served as executive producer for the video.

“This is the tragic, personal story of my friend, Miriam, who descended into the horrors of human trafficking as she fled violence against her family and herself in her native Ethiopia,” she said. “This modern-day form of slavery ensnares nearly 21 million of our brothers and sisters, an experience that no one should have to endure. We must illuminate and eliminate the curse of human trafficking.”
