Episode Notes

Breaking Distance

Beauty for Freedom (BFF), as an anti-trafficking organization, has always strived to connect communities and champion freedom via our global educational programming for survivors of human trafficking and at-risk youth along with our advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns. Throughout the COVID-19 Crisis, our team has been looking for ways to connect our ambassadors and artists to the global community by creating a project which could break the barriers of the insular lives we faced through the pandemic with quarantining and self-isolation while creating the possibility of uniting, connecting, sharing ideas, educating, and embracing our humanity through the arts and music.


BFF launched Breaking Distance as a way to continue connecting with our global community while sharing critical topics affecting our world and inspiring conversations. Topics covered include global health, human trafficking, art, music and mental health and wellness. We want YOU to JOIN the MOVEMENT!
