The New York City chapter of the National Organization for Women and the Athena Center of Barnard College are hosting a free movie screening and panel discussion on the subject of human trafficking on Thursday, July 28th, starting at 6:30. The screening will be held at the Diana Center at Barnard College, and the movie shown will be DEMAND, produced by Shared Hope International, which analyzes the international human trafficking market and exposes the "john" (the buyer of commercial sex) as the driving force that fuels trafficking. The purpose of the event is to educate the public and raise awareness of the prevalence of human trafficking, both in New York City, and around the world. After the screening of the film there will be a panel discussion on the issues it raises. The discussion will focus on trafficking in New York City and the way that the demand of buyers drives the market. Please join us for this free and informative evening, and add your voice to the chorus of voics demanding an end to human trafficking. It is time to band together to turn the spotlight on the buyers who for too long have not been held accountable for enabling and encouraging sex trafficking.
