Movie Minute: Caged No More

I was recently sent Caged No More, a movie that draws attention to human trafficking. It's not a movie for families with young children, but it is a good movie to help older teens and adults realize how trafficking can occur. The movie and website help detail the extent of human trafficking, as well as ways that people, organizations, and churches can help.

It was a hard movie to watch. I can't imagine what it must be like to be a victim of human trafficking, or to be the family member of someone who is. This movie follows a grandmother determined to find her granddaughters who have been kidnapped by their father. It's easy to assume that all cases of human trafficking happen in other countries, or to orphans or runaways, but that's sadly not the case. Luckily for these girls, they do have family fighting to find them.

The website has resources for people and organizations on recognizing red flags, the faces of trafficking, and a four-week Bible study. It's a good cause to get involved with, as it's much more prevalent than people realize.
