The evening starts with a performance by The Arts Effect, an all-girl theater company, of two monologues from A Day in the Life, a one-act play about the impact of sex trafficking on girls. The performance will be followed by a screening of I Am Little Red, a 10-minute animated short aimed at children most at-risk for sex trafficking (e.g. foster-care, runaway, LBGTQ, and homeless children), with the goal of prevention and awareness. I Am Little Red is narrated by Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain.


Also on display: the work of Freedom Ladder, a nonprofit organization that has developed Abolitionista!, a manga comic book with narratives and artwork to educate children about the dangers of child sex trafficking and empower them to protect themselves and their peers.
