“Not My Life is the first documentary film to depict the horrifying and dangerous practices of human trafficking and modern-day slavery on a global scale.
Filmed on five continents over a period of four years, Not My Life unflinchingly, but with enormous dignity and compassion, depicts the unspeakable practices of a multi-billion dollar global industry whose profits, as the film’s narration says, “are built on the backs and in the beds of our planet’s youth.”

If you’re going to the Northwest Conference Against Human Trafficking in January 2012, would you post a comment about your interest and involvement in the conference?   How did you hear about it?  What is driving your interest in attending?  What do you hope to do about HT after you attend?

Jackie left a comment elsewhere on this site and told me about a cool benefit at a posh restaurant in NYC this week.  I hope some of you can make it!   I copied her information about the event here:

Proceeds benefit the RedLight Children Campaign, a non-affiliated 501(c)3 organization targeting all forms of child sexual exploitation, human trafficking, and slavery. For more information please visit
In conjunction with an extensive awareness and education campaign, RedLight Children works to create and implement more effective programs to decrease modern day slavery. Child sexual exploitation is a global epidemic affecting over 2 million children worldwide. In the United States nearly 500,000 children, some younger than 10 years old, are being forced to work into the world of prostitution.
Most recently, the US State Department and Condoleezza Rice recognized RedLight Children for their work combating global human rights violations, awarding founder Guy Jacobson and RedLight Children the prestigious Global Hero anti-trafficking award.
