Join us for the Calgary screening of SPECKS OF DUST, the story of Guria, a group of activists fighting human trafficking: inspiring, fiery, hopeful.
Prospects are often limited for both the children born into India's red light districts, and for kidnapped children sold into slavery. They are held in a cycle of sex slavery and exploitation, often exposed to domestic violence and social stigmas that cripple their educational prospects. They have one haven: Guria Sansthan, a grassroots organization of visionaries fighting to end human trafficking and exploitation in the face of police and governmental corruption. For over twenty years, they have refused to rest until every child is free to live a vibrant and creative life.
