Join us for a free film screening Shattered Dreams Sex Trafficking in America – Tuesday, January 17, 2023, 6 to 8 p.m.

Shattered Dreams: Sex Trafficking in America is a first of its kind, feature length documentary that explores the deeply rooted psychological issues that victims of sex trafficking face on a daily basis at the hands of pimps and buyers. Through first-hand, heartbreaking testimony of abuse from three survivors of the illicit sex trade, the incredibly complex nature of this form of modern-day slavery is revealed. Investigative interviews with leading experts from across the country provide further insight on what drives the industry, exposing shocking revelations about the society we live in and the misconceptions many of us harbor that allow sex trafficking to thrive.

After the screening we will have a panel of local experts to talk about what we can do in Yolo County to support survivors. To register in advance and to enter the workshop enter the Zoom link: Register Here.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. We encourage community members to get involved by watching the film screening to learn more about the issues and what they can do to support survivors.
