Screen Survivor Stories

It is time to learn the truth about human trafficking. Join us in January for Screen Survivor Stories!

Mosaic is joining forces with organizations across the nation to launch “Screen Survivor Stories,” an initiative aimed at educating the public about human trafficking through film. This project, coinciding with January’s Human Trafficking Prevention and Awareness Month, offers a curated list of films vetted by human trafficking survivors, prioritizing authenticity and accuracy in portraying this critical issue. 

Be sure to follow along on our social media throughout January to learn more about the elements and dynamics of human trafficking seen in the films Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich, and Under the Same Moon. We encourage you to watch both of these films during January, which explore some of the root causes of human trafficking, and to follow our social media for discussion questions, prompts and commentary.

Join us on January 18th!

As part of the Screen Survivor Stories campaign, Mosaic will host a public screening of Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich, on Thursday, January 18th at 6:00 PM. At the screening we will have educational materials about trafficking and host a brief discussion after the film.

This is a FREE event for the public and no RSVP is required. Please plan on arriving early so we can promptly start the movie at 6:00 PM.

The screening will be located in the Karen Blumenthal Auditorium at Forest Green Branch library, located at 9619 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75243.

Please note: This public screening is allowable under Netflix’s policy for Educational Screenings of Documentaries, and no licensing is required. 

About the campaign

Earlier this year, Sabra Boyd, an independent writer and trafficking survivor consultant, polled hundreds of human trafficking ​survivors worldwide and developed a list of films ​that felt authentic and true-to-life.  Click here to view the list. 

Anti-trafficking organizations across the United ​States invite you to watch, learn, and share the ​lessons that human trafficking survivors want you to ​know throughout January. We hope this collective effort highlights the importance of survivor-informed initiatives in creating effective awareness and prevention strategies.
