Film version of Slave Across the Street looking for funding
Our Leadership Workshop 2011 featured a keynote speech on human trafficking by Theresa Flores, author of The Slave Across the Street, the true story of her two-year experience as a suburban teenage sex slave.
Flores is raising funds to produce the film version of her book. Her initial goal is to raise $28,000 for script production. You can contribute to the effort here.
Watch the video of Flores’s appearance on the NBC Today show, which was aired in advance of the NBC special, Teens in Trouble: Sex Slaves in the Suburbs.
AAUW Ohio has chosen human trafficking as a statewide project. To find out more about what your branch can do, visit our Stop Trafficking in Ohio page. Updated news and handouts are posted there regularly.
