 Complied by: Christine Tjahjadi-Lopez
Filmed: November 2011

This was my final product of 12 hours of work.  I conducted a hand full of interviews and used resources from notforsalecampaign.org as well as and interview with representative Nia Bates from ratanak.org.  My goal was to see how people of all ages felt about this issue, form middle school children to college students, to a mother with children.  I wasn't sure what people thought, I barely knew anything when I began this mini-documentary.  I wanted everyone to relate and get heads turning and hearts pounding. As I presented this video in class I asked, "Why is this such a hard topic to address?"  After a pause, I promoted the 38 college kids, 

"You are telling me that 
NONE of YOU have 
an opinion on this issue?"

Finally, after moments of silence, a good-looking, athletic, young man raised his hand.  As the room sat silent he said, "You wouldn't just start talking about something like this... it's so random... it's controversial." 


How is SEX TRAFFICKING controversial?  
What majority of people SUPPORT sex trafficking?  "Do you really think it's controversial- allowing people to trade and get money for raping women?" 

If YOU do not take a stand, WHO will?
IGNORANCE is NOT BLISS.

  1. I kinda agree. I'm not really seeing how sex trafficking is controversial. It seems like a pretty agreed upon issue... People in classes never seem to have opinions.
