PANELISTS AFTER THE FILM INCLUDE A SURVIVOR OF SEX TRAFFICKING
THIS EVENT IS FREE TO ATTEND - BUT WE ASK IF YOU WOULD PLEASE BRING AN UBER GIFT CARD FOR SURVIVORS.
Sanar Wellness Institute will give these cards to their clients to enable them to attend their much needed therapy sessions. Sanar reports that lack of transportation is a major barrier to survivors getting the healing they need. Public transport can be frightening for survivors, so with your help, we can get them to their therapy sessions in the calmest way possible.
For those survivors able to use public transport, Sanar also provides bus and train passes, and cash donations on the night will be used for this.
You can donate online to the Uber Gift Card & Transportation Fund for Survivors below:
The film screening is open to all (recommended for ages 13 and older).

WHAT PARTS OF YOUR CAR MAY BE PRODUCED UNDER CONDITIONS OF MODERN SLAVERY?
Guest speaker: Gina Falada, Tri-State Coalition for Responsible Investment
The whole picture of modern slavery is overwhelming and solutions can seem out of reach. But a path is made up of many bricks. We have chosen three specific areas to focus on as the first bricks to make a path to freedom. Pick a brick and help us start the path!
Consider slave made car parts as your brick.
Slavery is closer to you than you could ever imagine and there are simple habits you can change and things you can do to help make it clear that you will not tolerate it.
