Stolen Childhoods Released

Profiled on CNN, The Oprah Winfrey Show and NBC News Nightline, Aaron Brown called the film “a powerful piece of journalism, a testament to the dedication of the filmmakers.” Released theatrically in the US (20 cities) and syndicated on PBS, it has been used in curricula by hundreds of universities worldwide. The film examines the causes, nature and elimination of child labor trafficking and slavery.

We find Stolen Childhoods to be an amazing mechanism in drawing connections to the global child labor problem and our own child labor problem in U.S. agriculture. The premiere in D.C. drew an audience of 200-300 policymakers and concerned NGO professionals.
