MISSISSAUGA, ON - 

WHAT: The GTA premiere screening of the movie, “She has a Name” - a sex trafficking story centred around the account of one young girl’s terrifying journey through the sex slave industry and the lawyer who is determined to save her. 

Based on a series of true events, the film begins with the discovery of a locked and abandoned storage container in Thailand in 2008, containing 121 workers from Burma, 54 of whom are dead. “She has a Name” explores the global corruption that allows for human sex trafficking across borders and enables criminals to thrive from this industry. 

The cast and crew came together to create this film that raises awareness of the prevalence of sex trafficking and compels viewers to act to bring much-needed change for the millions of trafficking victims around the world who are waiting for help and rescue.

The screening will be followed with a panel discussion including Andrew Kooman, Writer and Producer, and Megan Cox Misawa, Embedding Advocacy Advisor at World Vision Canada, and will be hosted by Joan Kelley Walker.
