Sextortion: The Hidden Pandemic

January 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, a time to raise awareness and educate all members of society on how they can prevent and respond to human trafficking. The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) Dean of Students Office, the USM Center on Human Trafficking Research and Training (CHRT), and the Mississippi Human Trafficking Council are hosting a documentary film on sextortion, followed by a panel discussion with human trafficking subject matter experts.

Sextortion: The Hidden Pandemic is an investigation into the world of online grooming and sextortion–a present-day reality for one in seven children online. By unsealing the federal case of a top-gun pilot with hundreds of victims, and interviewing survivors and their parents, this true-crime piece exposes an often-overlooked crime against children, the tactics of online predators, and the voices of parents and law enforcement poised to stop online child exploitation in its tracks.
