COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, November 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Exodus Road announced today that international opera singer and anti-trafficking advocate, Soula Parassidis, joined their board of directors. Parassidis is a Greek-Canadian soprano who’s played leading roles on opera stages across Europe and the U.S. She uses her platform to bring light and action to the tragic reality of human trafficking.

Serving with The Exodus Road, Parassidis said she aims to continue her goal “to use the voice and other modalities of communication to empower and inspire people to be agents of positive change in the world.” She currently uses her Living Opera program to inform and equip classical musicians to succeed in the music industry and to use their voices for impact far beyond entertainment. Soula also serves on the Council of Advisors for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.

“The operatic voice is powerful,” Parassidis said. “It is raw and real. It is my desire to use that serious sound to draw attention to this serious problem, and The Exodus Road is an ideal partner.”

Parassidis joins eight other members of The Exodus Road’s board including Microsoft Director Steve Leigh, country singer Craig Morgan, activist Edwin Desamour, former MLB player Daniel Murphy, humanitarian photographer Nate Griffin, and nonprofit leaders Tori Murphy (founder of Prom Series), Sarah Ray (founder of Neema Development) and Laura Parker (co-founder of The Exodus Road).

The Exodus Road is a global nonprofit actively working to end human trafficking through prevention, intervention and aftercare. The organization partners with local law enforcement agencies around the world by going undercover to gather the necessary evidence to liberate survivors and arrest traffickers. The Colorado-based nonprofit also equips communities with counter-trafficking training and empowers survivors through trauma-informed, aftercare services.

“Soula brings a fiery passion and a strong voice, literally and figuratively, to the fight against human trafficking. We are so excited to have her as part of The Exodus Road team,” Laura Parker, The Exodus Road’s CEO and co-founder, said.
