The DCC partnered with the Junior League of Birmingham and the Maple Theater for a viewing of the film “Break the Chain”.
‘Break the Chain’ is an award-winning feature-length documentary film produced and directed by Michigan documentary filmmakers, Laura E. Swanson and Kirk Mason, that addresses the often “hidden-in-plain-sight” issue of Human Trafficking within Michigan communities and the United States. The film chronicles two survivors of Human Trafficking – providing a detailed look at how trafficking goes unnoticed within our backyards. Kwami, a child survivor of Labor Trafficking, was enslaved for nearly five years with three other children in Ypsilanti, Michigan before anyone noticed. Debbie, a survivor of Sex Trafficking, takes us through her experience of being sold for sex around the Detroit-Area between the ages of 13 and 18.
