Very Young Girls Reminder: TOMORROW!

Location:Kimmel 909
Time:7:00PM Wednesday, November 18th

"National Organization for Women at NYU invites you to join us for a screening of Very Young Girls, an expose of human trafficking that follows thirteen and fourteen year old American girls as they are seduced, abused, and sold on New York’s streets by pimps, and treated as adult criminals by police. The film follows the barely-adolescent girls in real time, using vérité and intimate interviews with them as they are first lured on to the streets and the dire events which follow. The film also uses startling footage shot by the brazen pimps themselves giving a rare glimpse into how the cycle of street life begins for many women. The film identifies hope for these girls in the organization GEMS (Girls Education and Mentoring Services), a recovery center founded and run by Rachel Lloyd, herself a survivor of sexual exploitation. Although this event is free, donation will be accepted and greatly appreciated. All donations go directly to the GEMS and the Girls Are Not For Sale campaign! Snacks will be provided!
