SI Oakland is offering a special screening of the movie "SOLD" at 7:30pm in Emeryville on September 8, 2016. We are honored to have Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley with us to introduce the evening and to provide a Q&A session after the film.
Through one extraordinary 13-year-old girl’s story, SOLD illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, which affects millions of children around the globe every year. Based on true stories, SOLD, is the story of Lakshmi who journeys from a pastoral, rural village in Nepal to a gritty brothel/prison called Happiness House in Kolkata, India.
SI Oakland is screening the film to raise awareness about sex trafficking of under-age girls, which happens right here in our own communities! SI Oakland, dedicated to what's "Best for Women" and is working with young women locally to build new and better lives, through support and education programs.
We hope you can join us for this special event. Contact SI Oakland for tickets.
