Come join us at the beautiful Dharma Lounge in Charlotte, NC for this compelling documentary – Cargo: Innocence Lost as it unveils the dark underworld of sex trafficking through compelling interviews with some of the country’s top officials on the subject, victims’ advocates and victims themselves, who were rescued in Texas. Award-winning director and writer, Michael Cory Davis (Svetlana’s Journey, Hollywood Film Festival 2005 winner, best short), makes his second directorial foray into this must-see, thought-provoking film that is interwoven with a raw, intense narrative based on numerous true stories from victims of the sex trade.

Human Trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world. There are an estimated 27 million slaves in the world today. The US Department of Justice estimates 14,500 to 17,500 foreign born victims are trafficked into the United States each year while 300,000 American children are at risk for human trafficking here in the United States every year.

Information on the $32 Billion human trafficking industry will be presented as well as information on how to get involved.
