Collin College to Screen Film About Sex Trafficking
COLLIN COLLEGE TO SCREEN FILM ABOUT SEX TRAFFICKING
Nov. 2, 2015 – Collin College’s Dignity Initiative will hold three screenings of the documentary “In Plain Sight,” a film that chronicles the way women and young girls are pulled into the world of sex trafficking and some of the ways they might get out.
To make the documentary, filmmaker Natalie Grant followed six modern-day abolitionists into the streets of major U.S. cities in their fight to end human trafficking. Learn how that struggle has influenced their lives and how they find hope for an end to these practices. Learn more at www.inplainsightfilm.com .
Three showings are planned at Collin College:
• 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 4 at Spring Creek Campus’s Living Legends Conference Center, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.
• 6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 17 at the Central Park Campus Conference Center, 2200 W. University Drive in McKinney.
• 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 18 at the Preston Ridge Campus Conference Center, 9700 Wade Blvd. in Frisco.
The Dignity Initiative is a district-wide Collin College campaign to raise awareness and inspire action on issues of violence against and oppression of women. The fall semester’s campaign focused on sex trafficking and its effects. Previous campaigns have focused on the objectification of women in media and the victimizer’s role in abuse and oppression.
