Thursday, the Stop Human Trafficking Action Group hosted a movie event. We showed the highly acclaimed short film “The Return” and afterward had a Q&A with the writer/director Matthew Szewczyk.

The film is based on a true human trafficking/labor trafficking case in Orange County, California. The film is a brutal reminder that human trafficking does happen in every country, in every city around the world.

We appreciate everyone who came out to our event as well as those who helped and supported us to get this event put together. A special thank you, too, to Matthew for giving of his time and talent so we could have this event.
