Journey to Freedom

“How I survived Human Trafficking and what can we do as a society to #endit.”

Ms. Timea E Nagy, International award-winning human rights activist and sex trafficking survivor has teamed up with local advocates and celebrities to deliver her story of survival, how she was given a second change in life in Canada, and how she found peace, love, and happiness.

Timea’s Cause Inc., a Cambridge based corporation, will be taking the stage at The Registry Theatre with Journey to Freedom to raise awareness of human trafficking in their first public performance featuring Timea Nagy telling her story with musical interludes including her original song “Life is Still Beautiful to Me”. The event also includes guest speakers David Morneau of Morneau Family Law, Laura Ross the Founder of The Grainary, and guest performance by local singer songwriter Amanda Kind. Proceeds from the event will go towards local victim efforts in human trafficking relief and tickets are available at www.timeascause.com/waterlooevent/

“Awareness is the key and our only chance to save and prevent our children to become a victim of this horrible crime. Our evening event was designed for the public to understand Human Trafficking, first hand. We are extremely excited to do this for the first time in Waterloo Region.” – Timea Nagy
The concert on September 27th will feature Nagy telling her story which has been quoted as “inspiring”, “unforgettable”, and “life-changing” and will be intercut with musical interludes including her original song “Life is Still Beautiful to Me” (available on iTunes and Spotify), “Jet Plane”, “Not Ready to Make Nice”, and various songs by David Cook accompanied by local musician Jason White.

With her global reach she has recently been asked to join a part of the UN team in fighting human trafficking around the world and has worked with police organization across the globe and has been featured on CNN, The Economist, and other international media outlets. Nagy immigrated to Canada in 1998 when she was trafficked from Budapest, Hungary to Toronto, Ontario where she was held in a cheap motel and forced to work in the sex industry.
