Event description

Description

Join us for a screening of Shreya Patel's documentary 'Girl Up' & panel of Durham Region human trafficking experts.

This short film depicts what human trafficking looks like within a Canadian Context. In the documentary, Emily Forward, a Scarborough native shares her story of how she became trafficked. She explains the stages she experienced of recruitment, movement, and exploitation. The film showcases how human trafficking happens in Canada and how it can happen in any area like a high school in Scarborough, or the financial district in Toronto.

After the film we have an panel of local experts to answer your questions about human trafficking in Durham Region. We are excited to be partnering with members of the Durham Region Coalition to end Human Trafficking, Durham Region Police, Bethesda House, Lakeridge Health & Victim Services to help answer your questions about human trafficking in our community.

Attendees of the event should expect to learn what human trafficking looks like in Canada. The event is open to all ages should a parent feel their child is interested in attending. While we understand the topic is sensitive, it is also important for children to be aware of what human trafficking looks like as they may be the first to identify a concerning situation of a peer.

All proceeds of the event will go to support youth in our community. The Optimist club of Brookin is pleased to bring this unique educational opportunity to our community.

If you or someone you know would like to attend but is unable to purchase a ticket please contact the organizer Denise Laframboise at mortgage@deniselaframboise.ca to be added to the attendance list.
