Help fund panel discussions on human trafficking

At Capture Humanity, we have been creating a 20-minute film that broadly looks at human trafficking in the State of Maine. We hope to engage with our community about how we can better support survivors with long-term housing, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, legal assistance, and education.
Could you help us make a difference? We want to screen this film in your community and bring survivor Cary Stuart and others to discuss the issue during a panel discussion. To travel to each screening and compensate Cary, we need funding. Please help us fund Cary and other experts for these vital community discussions on human trafficking today by donating.
When people hear that someone was trafficked, it is often assumed that they were kidnapped and forced into labor against their will. In reality, trafficking can be much more insidious. People are often exploited by someone they already know.  In this documentary film, we listen to the story of Cary Stuart, who was lured into the world of trafficking by a “Romeo pimp.”  In the film she reflects on her experience, how it has impacted her, and the challenges of reintegration into society.
-The action: Write to your local, state, and federal offices. Let them know you care about after-care services for human trafficking survivors and ask what they do to address it.
-Featured in the film are DA Jonathan Sahrbeck, Sergeant Tim Farris (Co-Founder Greater Portland Coalition Against Sex Trafficking & Exploitation), Maine Coalition against Sexual Assault Program Director Jessica Bedard, Safe Voices Director of Shelter and Housing Noelle Coyne and Survivor Leader Cary Stuart.
