Screening with Director Andrea Picco of “The Girl Next Door – The Story of a Human Trafficking Victim.” In this documentary short, Ms. Theresa Flores explains how her life as a typical suburban High School student was brutally interrupted when she was raped by an older classmate and subsequently trafficked. For two years she was threatened and sold. Afraid and ashamed, she stayed silent. Now she shares her story to help others find their voices, because just one assault is too many. An educator from VIBS will be on hand. For mature audiences; teens welcome, but due to sensitive content, we ask them to attend with a parent/caretaker.Please register in advance: 631-267-3810.
