Call & Response at the Living Room Theaters

Subject: Call & Response at the Living Room Theaters

Caroline Holmes, FBI Victim Specialist in Portland

Dear Coalition Members,

I am writing to encourage you all to get out to see Call & Response, a "rockumentary" about human trafficking.  The film is playing this week at the Living Room Theaters.  I know many of you have probably already seen the film, however I encourage you to bring your friends and publicize the film within your own agencies.   The film offers a great way for people who previously have no experience in human trafficking issues to learn a little more about the issue.  Please find a summary of the film below as well as a link to the Living Room Theaters website.
