Red Light/Green Light Screenings were well attended!
The Archdiocese of Vancouver was the first Catholic Archdiocese to sponsor the film “Red Light/Green Light” hosting free screenings at St. Patrick’s Parish Vancouver on May 16, St Augustine’s Parish, Vancouver on August 26, St. Luke’s Parish, Maple Ridge on August 27 and St. Joseph’s Parish, Langley on September 15.
Over 400 parishioners viewed the film including many young adults who learned about sex trafficking and then were able to debrief the film and participate in a thorough question and answer period facilitated by Sr. Nancy Brown and members of the CWL.
Here are comments from the participants:
“As many nations around the globe attempt to fight sex trafficking, many consider legalizing prostitution. The two film makers, Jared and Michelle Brock, founders of ‘Hope for the Sold’, traveled across 10 countries to answer the question, “How can we prevent sexual exploitation before it happens in the first place?”
– Penny Rogers, St Augustine Parish Social Justice Ministry.
“More than 100 people from around the Fraser Valley came out to watch this very informative film and become informed about the various approaches to sex trafficking and prostitution around the globe.”
– Angelina Stiglich, St Joseph Parish Langley and CWL member.
“The film examines prostitution and trafficking in the context of differing legal models of prostitution worldwide. Approximates 60 people from St. Luke’s and neighbouring parishes watched the film and heard an excellent summation of the current status of prostitution laws in Canada from Sister Nancy Brown.”
– Barbara Renaud, St Luke Parish Maple Ridge and CWL member.
