Awareness Movie -Detroit

February 23, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- Free

Join MAP and Rebell Nell at the 4731 Building on Grand River in Detroit as we learn dangers of trafficking.  Meet other local organizations and service providers that are working to address human trafficking in our communities.

We will be showing the documentary “Chosen

This film is appropriate for ages 13 years and up. “Chosen,” is a 20-minute film, tells the shocking true story of two “all-American” teenage girls deceived into trafficking. Eighteen-year-old Brianna was an honor-roll student and cheerleader and worked at a local café. Thirteen-year-old Lacy was an active member of her youth group, and a volunteer in her community.
Both were manipulated. Both were exploited. Both were chosen.

Each year in the United States, at least 100,000 children are exploited in the commercial sex industry. Because sex trafficking is an issue rarely discussed at home, in school, or in church, parents and children are unaware of the dangers that face America’s youth. The Michigan Abolitionist Project is reaching out with the truth with this Shared Hope International film, to equip and protect kids from being “chosen”.

Snacks will be provided.

Its in the 4731 Building on Grand River in Detroit.

Collaboration of Michigan Abolitionist Project  and RebelNell.
