PSA Title: A Cop's Plea
As a Police Officer for 28 years I have dealt with hundreds of these horrible situations. Women, girls, boys sexually abused, prostituted, beaten, shared, kept from their familes. Sometimes we can help. Other times there are tragic endings. My plea is for anyone to call someone and report if you suspect someone is being victimized. Please help save a life.

PSA Title: Slavery in Africa
Open a discussion on human slavery and trafficking in Africa. The PSA begins with international musician Kelechi Orji interpreting the issues through his dialogue and display of visuals. "Slavery in Africa. Human life is priceless. Somewhere in Africa a human like you is sold for just a hundred dollars. Slavery took away our people to a foreign land.."
The film was filmed in Texas but reflects an open dialogue on what is happening in Africa: In this 21st century, modern day is slavery, is happening and our leaders are pretending they don't know. Somewhere in Africa somebody selling an African man, somebody selling an African woman, somebody's enslaving an African child. Somewhere in Africa, a woman like you is held against her wishes, sold and taken to a foreign land as a slave. We must stand up and say no to slavery."
