Nefarious: Merchant of Souls Film Screening
Supply Drive for Homeless & Trafficked Youth in KS
We are hosting a film screening of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls on Tuesday April 5, 2016 at Frith Community Center at the Jardine Apartments at K-State.
Nefarious is a hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends of modern day sex slavery. From the first scene, Nefarious gives an in-depth look at the human trafficking industry, showing where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined. With footage shot in over nineteen different countries, Nefarious exposes the nightmare of sex slavery as experienced by hundreds of thousands daily, through the eyes of both the enslaved and their traffickers.
Nefarious features expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders, and captures the gripping and triumphant testimonies of survivors in order to galvanize hope and vision. From initial recruitment to victim liberation—and everything in between—the previously veiled underworld of sex slavery is uncovered in the groundbreaking, tell-all Nefarious: Merchant of Souls.

During the week of April 11-15, 2016, we are hosting the 3rd annual supply drive for ICT S.O.S. on the K-State campus. Items will support the ICT S.O.S. Fresh Start bags. There were 4 box locations: the K-State Student Union near the copy center, KSU Leadership Studies Hall lobby and KSU Derby Dining Hall, and KSU Vanzile Dining Hall. Items can also be brought to the "Nefarious: Merchant of Souls" Film Screening on Tues. April 5 at 7pm in the Frith Community Center at the Jardine Apartments.
Since 39% of homeless are youth and 1 in 3 homeless youth are approached by a trafficker in the first 48 hours of being on the street, we want to help youth in Kansas from being exploited by aiding WCH. The Street Outreach Services program at WCH is a program where volunteers go directly on the streets to give necessity items to the homeless, as well as inform them of the WCH as a source of shelter and aid. They also have "safe zones" around Wichita where the employees will call WCH if they see any youth being exploited.
