About Stacy Jewell

Stacy Jewell, writer, director, and producer of the award winning play 7 Layers Captive which premiered at the Kennedy Center, was born in California and raised in Washington, D.C. At age 19 she was abducted and forced into the dark world of sex trafficking. After being held captive for almost two years, she was liberated from the violence and the physiological abuse of the sex industry. Presently, she is an internationally recognized survivor leader in the human trafficking movement and was honored at the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Press Conference by the Honorable, Senators Chuck Schumer and Patrick Leahy. As founder of the Whoisstolen Creative Arts Troupe and Media Group, Stacy knows all too well that words have the power to uplift or tear down the soul. Her compelling dramatizations have helped organizations such as The National Center of Missing and Exploited Children, both FBI and state level human trafficking task forces, and have been featured at several High Schools and Universities worldwide. Stacy Jewell has dedicated her life to using the performing arts for community outreach and advocacy mobilization on behalf of the victims of sex trafficking from around the world. As she often states, “entertainment and media are powerful forms in creating public awareness,” and she believes that helping survivors & advocates find their voice through creative expression is vital to the movement of ending modern day slavery.
