Special Film Screening of the groundbreaking documentary "TRICKED"

"It's our sons, our daughters, it's happening in every neighborhood... it's our problem"
"TRICKED is not just an important film, it is absolutely necessary. One needn't look to the developing world for horrid stories of children being dragged into sexual slavery by heartless pimps and madams.  It is happening right here in the U.S. under our noses and TRICKED is just the film to help us begin the work of ending this horrid form of torture once and for all"  Abigail Disney, documentary filmmaker
