Leading a worldwide effort to eradicate sexual slavery...one life at a time
“I think this video will really shock teens. It has changed all of my assumptions about sex trafficking.”

I use the Chosen Plus and Eligidos Plus in almost all of my presentations against sex trafficking and human trafficking emphasizing they are by design made to be factual and for 12 and above, as opposed to so many films that take the sensational angle. I emphasise also that unlike most films explaining the issue of human or sex trafficking, our videos concentrate on How Our Children Are Being Tricked And Lured Into Trafficking. This always gets the eyebrows raising. Every time showing our videos raises extremely pertinent questions among the viewers, no matter the age group. I highly recommend their use in the community.

The original Chosen video is the perfect tool to use for middle school through young adult audiences – parents, too. The young woman in the video looks just like someone they would know, which brings home the fact that if it can happen to her, it can happen to anyone. Learn the material, be prepared for tough questions and be brave. This likely will be the first time they heard someone speak to the issue of human trafficking.

Excellent video that actually “tells it like it is.”

Our Anti-Trafficking Working Group finds the film, chosen; an effective way of getting high school students involved in discussing how gilrs are lured into sex trafficking. Then we follow-up with a presentation by a survivor of sex trafficking, who explains the objectification fnd objectifying of the victims. They also discuss ways of getting out of the victomication and being a survivor.
California Ambassadors – October 16, 2016
We were invited to a Catholic Charities luncheon yesterday by someone that had invited us to collaborate in educating the Catholic Church Diocese of Oakland about DMST.
We were both sitting at the table, sandwiching a lady who is employed by the Diocese of Oakland who told us that she had attended the first SHI presentation given in this collaboration with one of our Ambassadors presenting and several of us there for support and to work the resource table, since it was the first presentation of a series that had been arranged.
After the presentation, this lady went onto the website and purchased Chosen Plus. She felt it important to take that video to the Director of Religious Education at one of the Catholic schools and she talked with him about it what she had learned.
She told us then that he has now shown Chosen to both 7th and 8th grade classes before they graduated last year and just this last Saturday he showed it to 800 kids at their Annual Youth Rally.
This is just one thing that I thought I could do.
She said, “This is just one thing that I thought I could do. I’ll stay in the background and let him take it from here.” What an amazing story to hear yesterday, a testament that one small effort one takes can lead to great things.
