Brown Bag Discussion — 26 October 2011

Our October documentary theme continue with At The End of Slavery:  The Battle for Justice in Our Time.

This is a documentary from the International Justice Mission that will be screened on Wednesday, 26 October 2011, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM

If you missed the first showing of this film, here is another chance to see it.

In the same way that this picture of the slave ship Brookes galvanized thousands of people who had never seen or owned a slave, IJM hopes this powerful 30-minute film will awaken the world to the modern practice of human trafficking.

Join us to learn more about what you can do now to begin to end slavery around the world, here in the U.S. and even right here in Shreveport.
