On any given day modern slavery is happening in urban business districts, suburban strip malls, and rural towns across the US. You are likely to come across human trafficking on a daily basis without even knowing it. Join us for a documentary screening and conversation about human trafficking in public, widely transited, commercial front venues. Experts in the human trafficking field will discuss what you can do to take a stand and encourage local elected officials to prioritize the eradication of human trafficking. Come learn how to make a real difference in YOUR community and hear about the strategies task forces and organizations are using to combat modern slavery.
The documentary "Save My Seoul" delves into sex trafficking in Seoul, South Korea through interviews of traffickers, police, members of the general public, and sex trafficking survivors. The documentary exposes the realities of the global sex industry that enslaves women across the world as well as the cultural and structural realities that make certain populations more prone to being trafficked in Massage Parlors in the U.S.
