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.
