body and sold

Last night a group of area actors performed Body and Sold at my campus.  This production is a play written about eight different individuals and their true testimonies on how they were hooked into Human Trafficking.  I was so blessed to be able to see and hear what they went through.  This is the website for the production:

If you ever have the opportunity to watch it, I recommend doing so.  It’s about 80 minutes without intermission and covers everything from what led to these individuals getting sucked into Trafficking, what happened to them when they were in it and post-rescue as well as where they are today. 

The other thing I appreciated about it was that they were all domestic cases.  In other words, each one of them was American citizens lured into trafficking.  The reason that is, to me, so powerful is that it reveals American’s neglect of the problem.  It shows that it’s not just a border-issue or political one.  It’s happening under our noses.

So, anyway, check it out!
