January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month

The Junior League of Seattle focuses on women and children with a passionate interest in preventing human trafficking.  As we explore what we can do to bring an end to this horrible practice, we want to make everyone aware of what exactly human trafficking is and why it matters to us.

On January 22, 2012, the JLS is sponsoring the screening and panel of CALL+RESPONSE, a first of its kind feature documentary/musical performance film that reveals the world’s 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history.

CALL+RESPONSE goes deep undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2009, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion and Q&A about ways you can respond to modern slavery and bring about change. This screening and panel is sponsored by the Junior League of Seattle.
