Film Screening IN PLAIN SIGHT stories of hope and freedomPlease join us TODAY for a national screening of “In Plain Sight” at 4:30 in O'Connor Auditorium. IN PLAIN SIGHT seeks to raise awareness of the thousands of women and children who are forced, coerced, or deceived into the commercial sex trade each year in the United States. More...
Through the mediums of a documentary film, study guide, and accompanying benefit music album, we open the eyes of the average American to what’s happening “in plain sight” – the exploitation of thousands of people in their own communities without them even being aware. Most Americans are completely oblivious to the fact that thousands of women and children are enslaved within their own communities. This isn’t limited to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York. We’re talking about cities across America – from Sacramento to Little Rock to Baltimore – where the unthinkable is happening “in plain sight.” What’s Unique About This Documentary? - The film has been produced for the widest possible audience – accessible to people of all faiths or no faith at all. - The film is not Sexualized for shock value. - While we educate the viewer, our focus is on HOPE and the powerful steps that six ordinary women have taken to bring HEALING to the lives of survivors.
