Cheri Crider is the Office Manager and Outreach Survivor Leader for Amirah, Inc. in the Boston area. Her administrative gifts have enabled Amirah to achieve the level of excellence for which it is known. Having escaped commercial sexual exploitation 39 years ago, she knows both the heartache and triumphs of healing from trauma. Today, Cheri lends her experience to universities to develop curricula to protect vulnerable youth from exploitation. As an advocate and speaker, she facilitates groups to empower women and carries the message to end commercial sexual exploitation. As a member of the N.E. Survivor Leadership Collaborative, Cheri is a mentor to other survivors who desire to become active in advocacy work. The mythical unicorn is Cheri’s symbol that recovery from sexual trauma is not only possible but leads to fabulous freedom!
