Stories of Hope & Freedom Upcoming Documentary on Sex Trafficking in the U.S.
Executive Produced and Narrated by Natalie Grant, In Plain Sight: Stories of Hope and Freedom features six modern-day abolitionists as they fight sex trafficking across America. A free* screening is scheduled Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 6:30pm Marcus Majestic Cinema. It will be followed up by a time of Q & A with State Representative LaTonya Johnson, a survivor, and others.
Journeying to six US cities, the documentary opens the viewer’s eyes to what’s happening down the street "in plain sight." Through engaging interviews with numerous victims of sex trafficking, the force, coercion, and deception of the children and women becomes apparent. In the midst of the darkness, stories of hope and freedom emerge as each survivor shares how she was impacted through the work of a sex trafficking aftercare home.
“Most Americans are completely oblivious to the fact that thousands of women and children are enslaved within their own communities,” said David Trotter, co-executive producer. “This isn’t limited to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York."
"We’re talking about cities across America - even here in Milwaukee, Brookfield, Appleton, BeaverDam, and all over Wisconsin where the unthinkable is happening," said Krista Hull, founder of Redeem and Restore Center.
“The reality is that children are being ravaged day in and day out. If you have a heart beating on the inside of you, I don’t understand how this couldn’t be important to you,” said Natalie Grant, narrator and co-executive producer.
With a focus on educating the American public, motivating people to take action, and raise support for Redeem and Restore Center, a long-term restorative care home to open in SE Wisconsin.
