An amazing project to help raise awareness about child sex trafficking in Atlanta. It’s worth the entire 30 minutes. Their goal was to turn art/ movie lovers into activists. They definitely succeeded.
Description about the film from the Whitestone Motion Pictures website:
The Candy Shop is a film initiative to help fight against child sex trafficking.
This film is being made for the Doorpost Film Project, and with support from 12Stone® Church and Street Grace. The Candy Shop is a Fairytale/Parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta. We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.
Up to 500 underaged girls a month are trafficked for sex here in our city of Atlanta.
It’s the number one city in the country for child sex trafficking..
The 10th in the world.
This plague has gone on for too long, and now we at Whitestone, in cooperation with Doorpost, 12Stone® Church and StreetGrace want to put a stop to it.
