Our Documentary is now used in Child Protective Services Training
New York City's Agency for Children's Services and New Jersey's Child Welfare Institute having integrated our award-winning, 21-minute documentary video "What I've Been Through Is Not Who I Am" into their training for child protective service workers. The documentary uses one young woman's experience to describe the moving story of how American children end up in the sex trade, and just how difficult it is for them to get out once they are in. It also uses the voices of experts in law enforcement, service provision and policy to explain what we need to do to protect our children. It is an ideal tool for educating the child welfare system, the criminal justice system, state and federal legislators and the general public. We recently wrote to 45 state-level child protective service agencies who do not already have the film offering them free DVDs. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a DVD of "What I've Been Through is Not Who I Am" to use in your training and education program or campaign.
Our documentary was also shown at a Congressional Briefing in support of H.R. 2730, the Strengthening the Child Welfare Response to Human Trafficking Act of 2012 on yesterday. Please contact your member of Congress and urge him or her to co-sponsor this important legislation.
