Not Here presents #standwithme
Not Here Justice in Action Network invites you to join us for #standwithme. Not Here is a grassroots effort, started in Maine, to facilitate collaboration in our communities to address the threat of human trafficking and exploitation. We are especially concerned about the impact this has on vulnerable children globally and domestically. For more information, please visit: http://www.not-here.me/#!justice-in-action/cee1
You didn't know. Neither did Vivienne. When she learned that roughly 30 million people are currently enslaved, she felt compelled to do something about it. After seeing a photo of two enslaved boys in Nepal, nine-year-old Vivienne is moved to help in the only way she knows how: by setting up her lemonade stand. With the goal of freeing 500 children from slavery and raising $100,000, she takes it to the streets.
But Vivienne's not the only one raising hell about this issue. Humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine has devoted her career to photographing indigenous cultures across the world. When she learned that slavery still exists today, she began a journey to travel the world and document slavery from the front lines, hoping that the viewers of those images would be compelled to take a stand with her. One of those photos reached Vivienne.
More than just a journey into the issue, this film comes with a toolbox to get involved and start making changes. Paul Rice, founder of Fair Trade USA, and Maurice Middleberg, of Free The Slaves, share how our everyday actions contribute to modern day slavery and how we can reverse that.
#standwithme serves as an invitation for all of us to do our part and put an end to slavery worldwide.
