Join The Junior League of Tampa, Redefining Refuge and Stop the Movement for special screening of Surviving Sex Trafficking (2021) at the Tampa Theatre.
With 45 million sex trafficking victims worldwide (more than 12,000 of them right here in Florida), only 1% manage to escape or be rescued. Surviving Sex Trafficking examines the ongoing struggles of those survivors as they desperately fight to break free of their past, heal their bodies and minds, reconnect with a world of hope, and reclaim their lost humanity.
Jain monk Sadhvi Siddhali Shree, the filmmaker behind the award-winning documentary Stopping Traffic: The Movement to End Sex Traffic, as she uncovers the depth of pain felt by survivors as well as if and how they can truly recover. Through conversations with victims and trips to women’s shelters around the world, Surviving Sex Trafficking reveals their stories and how they escaped, how they continue to survive, and how they live day to day with the repressed trauma from the horrific events they experienced.
After the screening, Kaitlin Howell – The Junior League of Tampa’s Human Trafficking Awareness Chair – will moderate a panel discussion with Natasha Nascimento, the President & CEO of Redefining Refuge; and Sara LaChance, President of Stop the Movement.
Doors Open at 6:45 PM and the Program begins at 7:30 PM
