Brook Parker Bello’s first sexual experience happened at age 11, when she was raped.

As a teenager who suffered repeated sexual assault and abuse, Bello fell into alcoholism, ran away from home and was lured into prostitution by a “madam” in Los Angeles. She was eventually arrested in New York and served time in prison for prostitution.

Years later, Bello is sharing the story of her harrowing past in an effort to shed light on the horrors of human trafficking and sex slavery. She has partnered with the International Black Women’s Public Policy Institute to produce a documentary that tells her story of survival from human trafficking and her journey of overcoming her past.
