Fontbonne University’s Center Against Human Trafficking and Exploitation will host a screening of “I Am Jane Doe,” a documentary that explores modern day sex trafficking and a group of mothers battling against it. The screening will take place Friday, March 16, at 9 a.m. in the Lewis Room of the Jack C. Taylor Library at Fontbonne University, 6800 Wydown Blvd. It is free and open to the public.
The screening is made possible through the Incarnate Word Foundation, which has given a $14,200 grant in support of Fontbonne’s Center Against Human Trafficking and Exploitation. In addition to the screening, the grant funds the second round of a five-day training program for social service professionals involved in the identification, prevention and treatment of human/sex trafficking victims and survivors. An additional training session is planned for fall 2018.
Fontbonne launched the inaugural training program in the fall of 2017, along with the Center Against Human Trafficking and Exploitation. The Incarnate Word Foundation has been instrumental in its support and development.
