The Other Side is a portrait of Nikki Bell and her remarkable journey from a teen sex trafficking survivor to a powerful advocate for other survivors in Worcester, MA. Over the past 8 years, she’s set up an extensive network of support services to help women in her community overcome addiction, trauma, isolation, violence, and stigma associated with the sex trade.
Then the world changed seemingly overnight. When the pandemic began, Nikki’s drop-in center was forced to close, leaving the largely homeless population she serves stranded without food, clothing or support services. Nikki and her staff of survivors began risking their own health and safety to continue providing invaluable aid to women in need.
