Panel with The National Association of Women Judges and the American Bar Association’s Human Trafficking Task Force

Book Group Reboot invites you to a viewing of "Not My Life", a documentary that explores the dark, hidden and unspeakable realities of human sex trafficking. This modern day slavery is a multi-billion dollar global industry earned "on the backs and the beds of our planet’s youth. "Not My Life" is the first film to comprehensively depict the cruel and dehumanizing practice of global human trafficking. Filmed on five continents, it features over 50 interviews with trafficking victims and advocates in government, law enforcement and the private sector. Despite the evil it portrays, "Not My Life" is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.
Please join us and be part of the solution. The film is 83 minutes long and will be followed by a question and answer segment by a representative from the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation. We welcome your children 13 years or older.
