Journey to Freedom Movie
Monday, June 24, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
Please join us at an exclusive screening of the film
“Journey to Freedom” on June 24.
“Journey to Freedom” showcases startling similarities between the slave trade that occurred in the 1800’s and today’s human trafficking. It tells the true stories of two men—21st Century Cambodian Vannak Prum and 19th Century American Solomon Northup—who were sold into slavery more than 150 years apart. Journey to Freedom focuses in on the common roles played by individual abolitionists throughout history and the present day—and then pulls back to reveal these individuals to be part of a vast network waging a battle against human trafficking.
Executive producer Luke Blocher, of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, will introduce the film. Following the movie there will be a panel discussion. Invited panelists include Congressman Jim McDermott, State Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles, Mayor Mike McGinn, Kathleen Morris from Washington Anti-Trafficking Response Network (WARN), Judith Panlasigui from Asian and Pacific Islander Chaya and Seattle Police Department Detective Megan Bruneau.
The Seattle Channel will air the film and the panel discussion.
Please join us for this Seattle premiere and what promises to be an informative discussion.
