Join the Metro NY Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women for a film screening that will stun you, followed by a fascinating panel discussion, and a reception in recognition of the "Orange the World" Campaign, UN Women's initiative to end violence against women.
Narrated by Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain and reminiscent of Erin Brockovich and Karen Silkwood, I Am Jane Doe chronicles the battle American mothers are waging on behalf of their daughters, who were trafficked for commercial sex on Backpage.com, the adult classifieds formerly associated with the Village Voice.
Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion and Q&A session with renowned experts in the fight against human trafficking.
- Dorchen Leidholdt, Coalition Against Trafficking in Women
- Rev. Que English, Bronx Clergy Criminal Justice Roundtable
- Shandra Woworuntu, Mentari & U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking
