Behind the world-famous beaches, tourist attractions and sunny suburbs lies an alarming secret: Tampa Bay is a hotbed for human trafficking. Men, women and children are forced against their will to serve in the sex trade, domestic servitude and agricultural industries. They are bought, sold and discarded in our own community, ranking Florida the third-highest state in the nation for this fast-growing crime.
WEDU-PBS will present a preview of their new, non-fiction film that takes an in-depth look at Tampa’s human trafficking crisis and how local law enforcement, service providers and citizens are creating a grass roots movement to combat this form of modern-day slavery and educate the community on the special needs of victims and the many opportunities to help.
Immediately after the film, guests will hear from local human trafficking survivors, law enforcement, service providers, other community groups and the filmmaker.
