    Comprehensive treatment of facets of human trafficking that are often given short shrift: labor trafficking, domestic servitude, child soldiers, begging rackets and more. Compelling presentation of the global scope of these abuses.
    Great panel with Rachel Lloyd hitting the nail on the head about the connection between the vast array of social justice issues with human trafficking: poverty, sexism, classism, racism, etc.
    Great presentation and inspiring to see such a good turnout including many men.

    The movie was incredibly powerful—wrenching to see closeup the effects of trafficking and awe inspiring to see and hear the individuals who have made it their life's work to bring about change. The speakers afterwards were really outstanding—each having a somewhat different approach to the problem and different styles, but all incredibly thoughtful, knowledgable and committed. All in all a really awesome event.
