“California’s Forgotten Children”

On Saturday January 14th, LA Stop the Traffik had the opportunity to volunteer for a screening of documentary, California’s Forgotten Children. The film is described as:

“”California’s Forgotten Children” is a documentary about child sex trafficking and img_7485exploitation of children in California. The film focuses on true stories of youth who were sold on the streets of California and are now survivors and brave leaders, fighting for the rights of forgotten children in the United States.”

The documentary was created by Melody Miller, an alumna of UCLA and former LAST member, and her team. Our wonderful members, Alana, Alyssa, Antwan,Chelsea, Josh, Katherine, and Kunsorya helped set up the food table, greeted guests, and facilitated the Q&A session to show support for Melody’s documentary.

The film certainly brought some tears to some of us, as well as a new perspective on how geographically close human trafficking can be in our community.
