Elizabeth Fisher Good - Have You Been Groomed For Success or Failure? How One Thought Has Saved Thousands of Women from the Sex Trade

The Misfit Heroes Podcast

Elizabeth Fisher Good is the co-founder and CEO of Selah Freedom and The Selah Way Foundation, an organization that helps free women from the sex trade and provide a safe housing environment for the victims of this life.Since 2010, Her work with the organization has freed over 10,000 women from sex work and prostitution, and has created demonstrable change in laws across the country, as well as around the world. Nearly half a million children every year are sold into sex trafficking. 1 out of every 3 girls, and 1 out of every 5 boys will experience sexual abuse in their lifetime. Elizabeth is working to make that number zero.Through telling these womens' stories at their court hearings, and confronting the perpetrators of their abuse, the victims are able to overcome their past, and inspire others that may be in similar situations to have hope for the future. Elizabeth has recently had a new book published through Harper Collins, "Groomed: Overcoming the Messages that Shaped Our Past and Limit Our Future", and has been an advocate, speaker, and leader in the field of sex trafficking awareness and prevention for over a decade.We discuss the surprising and unlikely themes of the book, which is less about sex trafficking, and more about the grooming by those around us, which can lead to the proclivity to create the trafficking trade itself. We also discuss how the Selah Way Foundation was able to incorporate their programs into law enforcement agencies and enact real world policy changes in America, and the ways that people are groomed for appearance, invisibility, judgement, and finances.Elizabeth can be found online at www.freewithe.com and her book is available wherever fine books are sold.

Elizabeth Fisher: Chromosomes in mice and men

Discovery

Elizabeth Fisher, Professor of Neurogenetics at University College London, spent 13 years getting her idea – finding a new way of studying genetic disorders – to work. She began her research career at a time, in the 1980s, when there was an explosion of interest and effort in finding out what genes did what, and which of them were responsible for giving rise to the symptoms of various neurodegenerative conditions. Elizabeth has been particularly interested in those in which there are chromosomal abnormalities, like Down syndrome and Turner syndrome, as distinct from specific genetic disorders. Her work has helped in the understanding of what’s different about the genetic make-up of people with these conditions, and what new therapies might be developed in the future.Lizzie Fisher talks to Jim al-Khalili about how she was inspired to study genetics while standing on the red carpet, how she kept going during the 13 years it took to introduce human chromosomes into mice and why she's starting the process all over again.

Elizabeth Fisher Good is Raising Awareness About Human Trafficking with Her New Book "Groomed"

Sunday Morning Magazine

January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. Elizabeth Melendez Fisher Good is the CEO and co-founder of Selah Freedom and the Selah Way Foundation, which exists to prevent sexual abuse, exploitation, and sex trafficking of children and young adults. Elizabeth is also the author of a new book which reveals how sexual exploitation and other exploitation begins at a very young age, and how we can become healed, and empowered to make changes: Groomed--Overcoming the Messages That Shaped Our Past and Limit Our Future. One key way to make a difference now is to call our Federal representatives to support House Bill 4388 which provides for the implementation of curricula for training students, teachers, and school personnel to understand, recognize, prevent, and respond to signs of human trafficking and exploitation in children and youth. It included age-appropriate curricula for students from K-12. www.theselahway.org www.selahfreedom.com
