Amy Marie-Merrell the Executive Director of the Cupcake Girls is this week’s guest on Adult Site Broker Talk. Since 2006, Amy has been working with domestic violence survivors, as well as in the prevention and aftercare of domestic sex trafficking.
The Cupcake Girls provides trauma-informed outreach, advocacy, holistic resources, and referral services for the prevention and aftercare of those affected by sex trafficking, as well as confidential support to those involved in sex work. They offer assistance to individuals as they move towards greater independence and self-sufficiency.
The conversation begins with Amy telling how it happened that she got involved with the Cupcake girls, what exactly they do and what differentiates them from other, anti-trafficking organizations. Amy goes on to talk about the biggest sex work stereotypes her clients face, how the meaning of sex work has changed in recent years, common misconceptions about sex trafficking and many more.
Bruce, host of the show and CEO of Adult Site Broker said: “Amy has made it her life’s work to help sex workers, trafficking victims and domestic violence survivors. Her dedication really warms your heart. We had a nice conversation on the Cupcake Girls and how they’re different.”
