Councilmember Curren Price and Honoree Tangelia Myles

Tangelia Myles, a human trafficking survivor and advocate for victims, was the 2019 “Pioneer Woman of the Year” for District 9. On March 8, Tangelia was one of 15 women honored by Los Angeles City Councilmembers on International Women’s Day.

She is a California native, born and raised in the Ninth District. As a minor, she bounced around from foster home to foster home. From the ages of 18 to 22, her trafficker moved her across the United States to Las Vegas and New York.

She not only helps survivors of sex trafficking, she is also a tireless advocate for foster children and the homeless. Tangelia’s inspirational story of triumph over adversity, as well as her courage and strength to rebuild her life, make her this year’s CD 9 Pioneer Woman!

“Being chosen as a pioneer woman for my work in human trafficking is affirmation that I have truly turned my pain into purpose,” Tangelia Myles said.
