ArtWorks for Freedom

Kay Chernush is founder and director of Washington, DC-based non-profit ArtWorks for Freedom. Kay has developed a unique artistic approach to expose the evils of human trafficking through the power of art. Working with anti-trafficking Non Governmental Organizations, she develops close relationships of trust with trafficking survivors, seeking to make visually compelling images that avoid exposing to public stigma or further danger those very people she wishes to help.

Barbara Amaya interviewed Kay Chernuch about how art can raise awareness of human trafficking and help empower survivors. Chernush says, “Millions of small acts of imagination and changed behaviors can shift the equation. We can end this horrific global tragedy.  It is simply unacceptable that slavery not only exists but that it is so pervasive. My vision is of a world where no human being is the property of another.”
