Event Details

Events at Sierra CollegeThe Sierra College Sociology Department is joining up with the Stand Up Placer organization to present the documentary film titled California’s Forgotten Children, written and directed by Melody C. Miller. The award-winning film will be presented on Wednesday, May 1, from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. in Weaver Hall, Room 110 (Building W) on the Rocklin Campus. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion. There will also be a showing May 1 at 11am-12:20pm in M4, with no discussion afterward. 

California’s Forgotten Children is a feature documentary about child sex trafficking. The film recounts true stories of girls and boys who were commercially sexually exploited in California and are now survivors and courageous leaders fighting for the rights of victims worldwide.  

The survivor’s stories show that any child can be exploited regardless of ethnicity or social economic background. The film highlights heroic stories from abolitionist and advocates who work night and day to protect children and to put an end to this epidemic.

The film serves as a call to action by giving viewers the tools and the knowledge to combat this scourge. By creating awareness, this documentary empowers a movement to address this epidemic and support survivors on their path to freedom. This is not just a documentary; this is a movement.
