Tune into this empowering interview with award-winning journalist Anne Elizabeth Moore as she shares how she felt like she didn’t have a choice but to become an author, how her master plan of playing a “dumb American” let her behind closed doors in a factory in Cambodia, and what she has discovered is happening with female workers in the fashion industry all over the world – from garment workers in Asia to fashion models on the screens of Times Square.
You may be surprised to hear how big parts of the fashion industry has a lot to do with sex trade and maybe even more so to hear that the sex industry is in many people’s lives the better way out…

I had the honor of meeting Anne Elizabeth at an intimate meet-up at a coffee shop in Brooklyn when she came to speak with us about her recent book – Threadbare. I instantly knew I wanted to have her on Hey Change, and when I humbly asked her afterward, she was cool enough to give me a firm and happy “YES!”
Anne Elizabeth’s Retruth
I tend to think about retruthing as a process. So when I think about retruthing I think about implementing something in a process that I call radical listening, when you take your whole body and try to tune into a new idea – in a full body way; Psychically, emotionally, and physically, and you just engage with it in a way that you may not have had the experience before.
It’s about being compassionate to other people and just being really open and trying to hear what other people are telling us. Both in a politically way and even just in our daily lives – listening to our neighbors, friends, family etc. Really trying to open ourselves up to compassion in a deeper way, that’s something we’re really called upon today.
