When & Where
Utopia Lumiere Films
Utopia Lumiere Films is a Santa Monica based film production company, Marie Paquim, Creative Producer. It's goal, to fight against human trafficking, or modern day slavery through its film project, Land of the Free, Except for Me. Marie, a survivor of human trafficking, has used her own experience as fuel for the project, and has added extensive research to create a true-to life script to tell the truth about what is now happening in the United States, where human trafficking is now the #2 black market.
"Love Freedom" is an important event, where Marie, along with 2 other survivors, Petra Hensley and Chong Kim, will tell their stories. Also producer/writer and former United Nations worker Erin Grover who will talk about her work following the sex trafficking trade in Cambodia.
The evening will also serve as a time to be inspired, and to celebrate the empowerment of women, and Love, of our selves, and our freedom. There will be amazing food provided by Large Marge Sustainables, and a very funny and talented magician, "Wacko" (of Vegas/Disney and soon a USO tour) to both amaze and keep us in stitches.
For those who love Fine Art, talented artists will have their work on display for silent auction. There will be other items, plus a raffle, and some music to wind the evening down.
Last but certainly not least, food is catered by Large Marge Sustainables.
Come one, come all! Help us to free the slaves! For those wishing to make a tax deductible contribution, AACTEV8 International a non profit 501 (c) (3) has agreed to be fiscal sponsor for this fundraising drive.
