Screening of #standwithme and Discussion
February 9, 2015 | Arlington, VA
Deloitte cordially invites you to a special screening of #standwithme to raise awareness for National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The feature-length documentary follows the inspiring true story of Vivienne Harr, a 9-year-old who sets up a lemonade stand with the goal of freeing 500 children from a life of slavery. As Vivienne's vision begins to show promise of something greater, her community stands with her - and she starts her own social purpose company. #standwithme is a trenchant, uplifting examination of the realities of modern-day slavery, the role we play in it as consumers, and the importance of knowing the story behind what we buy.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with students and other key players in the anti-human trafficking movement on what organizations within DC are doing to combat human trafficking, with a specific focus on connecting student AHT leaders with those from the public and private coalition.
This event is hosted by Deloitte’s Global Migration and Border Management (GMBM) practice. GMBM helps clients make globally informed and locally relevant choices about border management and immigration. The overarching goal of our efforts is to help clients solve immigration-related challenges, which includes anti-human trafficking.
