Nilda Valmores is the executive director of the Sacramento-based organization My Sister’s House. Her group works with women from Asia and the Pacific Islands who have either been brought to the United States via human trafficking networks, or who have ended up in domestic violence situations. Here, Valmores discusses the challenges posed by working with women who are frequently scared, oftentimes don’t speak English, and feel that their options are, at best, limited.
