UNICEFF Makes a Difference with Not My Life

It is simple to pay close attention to an issue when it is sitting in front of us, but what happens when we are not constantly reminded of these less than rosey realities? They are forgotten.

UNICEFF is giving us a chance to take part in an event that will further educate us on modern day slavery and human trafficking. Human trafficking is a horrifying issue that is practiced globally and hidden carefully. Yes, the topic is mentioned in novels, films, and news stories, but it will take more than a mention for the public to take proper action against the growing reality. Susan Bissell, Chief of Child Protection, will be the first speaker in a series of luncheons in the Dallas- Fort Worth area, and she will speak about the documentary, Not My Life. Not My Life is a feature- length documentary that will inform audiences about the children, women, and men who endure physical and emotional abuse that we can only imagine, and we have only heard about. If you would like to be a part of this important and necessary movement, get informed and end your indifference on this horrifying topic. Please join UNICEFF and Susan Bissell
