Playground: The Child Sex Trade in America

A Private Screening and Discussion with the Filmmaker

Monday, March 2 at 6 pm

Chapman Hall, Room 125 on the UNC-CH campus


Every year an estimated 100,000-300,000 children are trafficked domestically for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation, and yet theirs is one of the most invisible forms of trafficking. Playground chronicles the problem here in North America. This feature-length documentary follows the stories of several girls who have been trafficked, exploring the cultural, social, and economic factors that make them, and all children, vulnerable to abuse.

Join us for a screening and discussion with filmmaker Libby Spears, local activists, and campus allies. Learn more about child sex trafficking and what you can do to put a stop to it.

  1. I am working with a group of women at Appalachian State University to put on a benefit to raise money for organizations fighting human trafficking. Is there any way for us to get a copy of your movie?
