I am Jane Doe film Screening and Discussion
Sunday, January 21, 2018, 2:00 pm
Northbrook Public Library, 1201 Cedar Lane, Northbrook

Backpage.com is the most common method of selling and buying sex often from minors who are trapped in the sex trafficking industry. Hiding behind the First Amendment and freedom of speech, pimps use this website to flaunt teens using term such as “fresh” and “just off the boat” to describe young girls recently enslaved. Mothers and the young women themselves discuss their fight to bring down this website and stop the industry from hurting our girls.

View this thought provoking film and join in a discussion with a panel of experts. Learn about the latest developments and how you can advocate against the third largest criminal industry responsible for trapping between 16,000-25,000 local young women every year.
