HUMANS FOR SALE???



Friends,

TOMORROW - Friday, September 28th is the opening date for the movie TRADE.

Get this:

Roadside Attractions (the production company) has made a generous offer – 5% of the box office proceeds that TRADE garners in its first week will be donated to Not for Sale, IJM, Equality Now, and the United Nations initiative on human trafficking.

This is good news! Let's go see it eh' - support the FILM and the FIGHT alike...

Here's a bit about this POWERFUL film.

Inspired by Peter Landesman's chilling NY Times Magazine story on the U.S. sex trade, "The Girls Next Door," TRADE is a thrilling story of courage and a devastating exposé of modern day slavery and human trafficking. Kevin Kline leads an extraordinary cast.

TRADE will be released in 25 cities. Help make "Trade" the most watched movie the first week of its release to push the film industry for a wide release. Bring your family and friends to watch TRADE!

Watch the trailer and GET INVOLVED!
