Join NCJW NY for a special screening of I Am Jane Doe, a 2017 documentary that chronicles the epic battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their middle-school daughters, victims of sex-trafficking on backpage.com, the adult classifieds section that for years was part of the iconic Village Voice. Reminiscent of Erin Brockovich and Karen Silkwood, these mothers have stood up on behalf of thousands of others, fighting back and refusing to take no for an answer. It is a heart-wrenching human story and fresh look at a social and legal issue that affects every community in America.
I Am Jane Doe is narrated by Academy-Award nominee Jessica Chastain, directed by award winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio and produced by Mazzio and Academy-Award nominee Alec Sokolow.
Alec Sokolow, Co-Producer, will introduce the film and lead a Q&A immediately following the screening.
