“Trafficked” Film Screening

Woman’s Club of Fullerton & AIB2B will present a special screening of “Trafficked: We Are Not For Sale” on Sat, January 11 at 1pm at The Frida Cinema in Downtown Santa Ana (305 East 4th Street).

Sex trafficking is a $150 billion dollar industry. Youth in Orange County are being groomed for sex trafficking and awareness is the best way to fight it.

Released in 2017 and based on real life events, starring Ashley Judd and Patrick Duffy, “Trafficked” revolves around three young women who were forced into slavery in the international sex trade, entering the trade from various socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Duffy plays the corrupt Congressman Christian Conrad, his first “Bad Guy” a character which he describes as a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The afternoon will begin with a ceremony featuring elected officials and introductory remarks by Conroy Kanter, producer of “Trafficked”. After the live screening of the 105-minute film, a post-movie panel discussion will include Jan Jeffcoat, CBS anchor and media personality, Bishop Gale Oliver of Greater Family Life Church in Santa Ana, Andrea Espino, the human trafficking specialist of WTLC, a Fullerton based non-profit and Crittenton, another nonprofit focused on services for children and families. Finally, a survivor will join us and share her personal story of being trafficked and rebuilding her life after tragedy and abuse.

Not recommended for those under 14.
