“Sex and Money: A National Search for Human Worth” | Div of Social Work Free Documentary Screening Tonight for Human Trafficking Awareness Week | Memphis

The Division of Social Work within the School of Urban Affairs & Public Policy will host a free screening tonight, Monday, Nov. 14  at 6 p.m. in the Michael D. Rose Theatre of the documentary:

Sex+Money: A National Search for Human Worth.

The feature length documentary follows a group of photojournalists as they travel across the United States seeking to understand how the sexual exploitation of children has become the nation’s fastest growing form of organized crime — and chronicling the modern day Abolitionist movement to stop it.

The goal of the Sex+Money documentary is to bring freedom to those enslaved.

The documentary addresses the issue of children and adults bought and sold in an underground sex trade.

As noted by NewsChannel5.com:

Human trafficking is now the second fastest growing crime in the country. In just  two years, thousands of cases have been reported to law enforcement and the Department of Children’s Services leading Governor Bill Haslam to declare November 6 through 12th as the first “Human Trafficking Awareness Week.” 

For more information, contact Carolyn Crane at 678-2800 or Freda Martin at 678-1581.

The Rose Theater is located at:
