(ACTION DC!) “Not My Life” Film Screening

October 18 @ 7:00 pm

- Free

Directed by Robert Bilheimer, “Not My Life” has been hailed as a “masterpiece,” and seen by millions of people across a very broad set of global demographics. Filmed on five continents, in a dozen countries, Not My Life takes viewers into a world where millions of children are exploited, every day, through an astonishing array of practices including forced labor, domestic servitude, begging, sex tourism, sexual violence, and child soldiering. Challenging though it may be, Not My Life’s message is ultimately one of hope. Victims of slavery can be set free and go on to live happy and productive lives. Those who advocate for slavery victims are growing in numbers, and are increasingly effective.

Join us as we screen this groundbreaking film followed by discussion.
