Take the Next Step

Watch the movie Nefarious

In your GoBox, find the DVD Nefarious: Merchant of Souls. To further educate yourself, watch this powerful documentary depicting details of modern-day sex slavery. Using research and accounts collected from 19 different countries, the filmmakers share stories from victims, traffickers, and international humanitarian leaders.

Know the facts

Reading definitions and statistics on human trafficking is one way to learn; hearing the personal testimonies of those who have lived through the suffering is something entirely different. It is time to step up and stop these stories from multiplying.

If you have already seen Nefarious, or, if you are interested in other movies, here are some additional suggestions:

Not My Life (2011, documentary narrated by Glenn Close)
