Modern Day Slavery in Michigan Explored

On Saturday, September 16th,  the Soo Film Festival will be featuring the award winning film “Stuck in Traffic, Modern-Day Slavery in Michigan”, accompanied by the short  “Anna” dealing with the same subject.

Stuck in Traffic” is a 40 minute film that exposes the Michigan connection to the multi-billion dollar industry of Sex trafficking and explores how traffickers exploit and control their victims.  It is a stark reminder that the impact that this deplorable trade has upon our communities, our children and our families cannot be ignored.

We urge you to watch this film and participate in the Q &A panel that follows. Parents and community leaders need to understand and be able to recognize the signs,  so they can help our children and vulnerable adults to avoid becoming modern day slaves.

“It’s happening to somebody right now as we speak, and it needs to stop. We cannot look the other way. because when we look the other way evil is perpetuated… and this is happening to somebodies daughter, perhaps somebodies son, is being abused abused today” Tom Watkins
