Carolina Women’s Center is hosting a film screening:

Cargo: Innocence Lost

Monday, October 24 

The Arts Center, 300-G East Main Street, Carrboro, NC.

The film documents the stories of the millions of people bought, sold, and traded every day, most of them ending up in the United States every year, invisible to the general public. Of all the people brought into the country, 70% are women and children. The film tells the stories of these people, interspersed with interviews of top national officials, two victims that were trafficked from Mexico into Texas, and the story of an Eastern European girl brought into San Francisco to work in a brothel.

North Carolina, as a state, is particularly vulnerable to sex trafficking. Please come out to view the film and engage in discussion to learn more about local and global effects of the sex trafficking industry.

The night will begin with registration from 6:00-6:45

7-8:30: Welcome from state senator Ellie Kinnaird and Cargo film screening

8:30-9:00: Q&A with Dr. Donna Bickford of the CWC

The film is free, however donations will be accepted at the event.
