Chong Kim is an Asian American survivor of human trafficking and child sex exploitation, a harrowing experience she recounts in her memoir, Broken Silence, and in the 2012 film Eden, starring Jamie Chung, Beau Bridges and Matt O’Leary. Kim’s memoir will change to the title In My Own Words to be released in fall of 2014 or spring of 2015.

Today, Kim is a dedicated human and civil rights advocate, working tirelessly to educate others on how to keep their families and communities safe. A public speaker for nearly 10 years, she works alongside those who are striving to end slavery and injustice and empower victims and survivors alike.

Kim has been volunteering her time as a freelance legal advocate in various states to help identify possible victims of trafficking for, but not limited to: California, Georgia, New York, Texas and Minnesota as well as promoting human and civil rights. She uses her personal story to enlighten NGOs and political officials and reach out to trafficking victims.

In 2011, she received a recognition award from the LAPD of California for her hard work collaborating with the law enforcement and educating the public on trafficking issues. In 2006, she received an award from the National Campaign for Tolerance, which also engraved her name on the Wall of Tolerance in Montgomery, Alabama, which testifies of her commitment to maintain a public stand against hate, injustice and intolerance.

Chong Kim has traveled extensively to promote awareness and to open the public’s eyes to the diverse victims affected by human trafficking. She has been working incessantly to establish political change regarding victim base offenders of trafficking, medical research for trafficked victims and to give amnesty to those who contribute to legal cases, while at the same time volunteering in diverse capacities to advocacy work.

Having attended over 100 seminars & training, she provides audiences with deep insights into domestic violence, immigrant victims of crime, medical research regarding typology of victims of crime/trafficking, cyber crimes/child pornography, human trafficking/prostitution, consulting and education on the dynamics of trafficking and startup procedures for charities.
