Two years ago, we embarked on a 10-country journey to examine the best ways to prevent sexual exploitation. The result was a documentary called Red Light Green Light, and since October of 2013, we’ve completed an 85-city Canadian film tour, including a Parliamentary screening in the nation’s capital. Engaging political representatives, churches, universities, women’s crisis shelters, and law enforcement, our goal has been to foster conversation and inspire action toward effective models of trafficking prevention. Red Light Green Light highlights the complexities of this issue in a tasteful, thought-provoking way, and presents some hopeful initiatives that have great potential to prevent sex trafficking on a global scale.
Along the way we’ve had the opportunity to write articles for numerous media sources (Huffington Post, Relevant Magazine, Converge), as well as appear on radio and TV (CBC, CTV, CNN, WDCX). Hope for the Sold was also requested to testify before the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights regarding Bill C-36.
But our work is just beginning!
We want to take the message of trafficking prevention far and wide, and are looking for one time givers and monthly donors to help us get there. Here’s what we’re working on next:
Here’s what you can do:
1) Ride in this year’s Ride for Refuge on October 4
2) Make a donation directly to Hope for the Sold
