This screening will be held at the State Theater and will be among the first to be shown in the United States. The documentary depicts the realities of child-trafficking and has received global acclaim.
A speaker panel will take place following the film and will include Dara Reppucci and Jessica Soto, attorneys for the Boston based law firm Ropes & Gray, who represent mothers suing the government in a case that has the potential to reach the supreme court. Additional panel members include; Julie Pfluger, Assistant United States Attorney; Fredi Ellen-Bove, Administrator, Division of Safety and Permanence at the Department of Children and Families; Lt Ryan Dahlgren, Eau Claire Police Department; Ashley Nishke, Clinical Manager, Transitions Group Home; and Jodi Emerson, Director of Public Policy and Community Relations, Fierce Freedom.
