Word Made Flesh staff are witness to sex trafficking all around the world, and it even happens locally. Join us at Beggars Society in June and July for a special series about sex-trafficking.

In June, we will watch Hidden in Plain Sight: Prostitution in Nebraska, a locally produced film that gives a greater understanding of sex-trafficking and its presence in Nebraska. We will have a talkback with Abra Poindexter and Megan Smith, psychotherapists in Omaha who have worked with individuals involved in the sex trade.

In July, we will welcome WMF Asia Regional Coordinator and Sari Bari Director Sarah Lance. Sari Bari is a business initiative that seeks the freedom and restoration of Kolkata’s red-light areas through dignity-giving employment opportunities for women affected by the sex trade.
