Human Trafficking

A few years ago, police in a town in NJ raided a suspected brothel. But they didn’t find young women working as prostitutes, they found sex slaves who had been trafficked from overseas—captives whose every move was controlled by the traffickers. Trafficking involves taking people through force, coercion, or other means for the purpose of exploiting them—slavery. Here are some good films dealing with this subject:

  • The Day My God Died, documentary film by Andrew Levine – children sold into sexual slavery—and those who help save them
  • Human Trafficking, film for TV – ‘young women forced by violence into a hellish existence of brutality and prostitution’
  • Call + Response, slavery today – ‘there are more slaves today than at any other time in history’
  • Sex Slaves – award-winning CBC documentary
