This weekend: anti-human trafficking film at the Art

Who has the potential to discover a human trafficking victim? You!

Many believe that slavery ended in the 1800s or it happens only in other countries. The reality is
there are more slaves in the world today than at any other time in history. And these exploited
victims, foreign and domestic, are starting to surface in Midwest communities similar to ours.

The documentary “Call + Response” gives us a glimpse into what modern day slavery looks like.
Since many trafficking victims are hidden right in front of us, this global problem requires a
community-based solution.

Bound No More will be hosting an informal reception after the documentary. This
reception will serve as a place to discuss and ask questions about the documentary and human
trafficking in general. We will also be providing information about how to identify and report
potential trafficking situations in our community. We welcome those just beginning to learn
about this issue as well as those justice-minded individuals interested in joining together to fight
human trafficking in our community.
