The Salvation Army Santa Monica is hosting a FREE documentary screening of, I AM JANE DOE.
I AM JANE DOE chronicles the epic battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their middle-school daughters, victims of sex trafficking on Backpage.com, the adult classifieds section that for years was part of the iconic Village Voice. Narrated by Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain, directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio, and produced by Mazzio and Academy-Award nominee, Alec Sokolow, the film is a gut-wrenching human story and fresh look at a social and legal issue that affects every community in America.

Additional resources about The Salvation Army’s anti-trafficking initiatives across the United States as well as opportunities for you to become empowered to do justice in your local community will be made available! Popcorn, drinks, and snacks are available on a “pay what you can” basis. All proceeds from snack sales will benefit the work of The Salvation Army in Santa Monica.
