DCC Movie Night “Break the Chain”
February 27, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The DCC is partnering 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. After the movie there will be a Q&A session with the filmaker Laura Swanson, the Detroit Crime Commission and Vista Maria at approximately 8:30pm.
Donations: Attendees are encouraged to bring gently used teen clothing and full-sized hygiene products to the event. Detailed lists can be found here: https://www.vistamaria.org/in-kind-drive/
All proceeds will benefit the Detroit Crime Commission’s Anti-Human Trafficking Initiative.
