A screening of the 2012 film Not My Life is at the centre of an event Thursday, February 22, meant to raise awareness of human trafficking.
Filmed on five continents, in a dozen countries, Not My Life comprehensively depicts the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Director Robert Bilheimer takes viewers into a world where millions of children are exploited through an astonishing array of practices, including forced labour, sex tourism, sexual exploitation, and child soldiering.
The screening will begin at 2 p.m. followed by a discussion in room 110, Pitt-Ferry Building, at 167 Ferry Street. Human Trafficking Awareness Day is sponsored by Legal Assistance of Windsor and its WeFight.ca project.
Organizers ask those intending to attend to RSVP by February 16 to email@example.com.
