Awareness Fosters Action – – Human Trafficking “Stoppers”
Human Trafficking is Modern Day Slavery. Did you know that human trafficking is the fastest-growing criminal activity in the world and only second to drug trafficking in size? It exists everywhere, even in the U.S., even in NC. Human trafficking generates over $32 billion a year in profits while victimizing countless, voiceless victims, 50 % of which are children. “We have a huge responsibility, right now, to learn the truth and act on it”, says Robert Bilheimer, Academy Award nominee and director of “Not My Life”. Bilheimer’s film takes viewers into a world where millions of children are exploited every day through forced labor, domestic servitude, begging, sex tourism, sexual exploitation, and child soldiering.

Mr. Bilheimer will be in Raleigh at a free screening of “Not My Life” on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. SAVE THE DATE. Come learn more about what child trafficking encompasses and what we can do about it. A discussion with the director/film maker will follow the screening.
