      Refer them to "Very Young Girls," the film which i emotionally experienced a few nights back and has been at the forefront of my brain ever since. If you have yet to view it, please check out the trailer and get more info at VERY YOUNG GIRLS, it's playing now on cable.

      -----------

      From the site:

      “Lucky ones get a chance at a normal life”

      Very Young Girls is an expose of human trafficking that follows thirteen and fourteen year old American girls as they are seduced, abused, and sold on New York’s streets by pimps, and treated as adult criminals by police. The film follows the barely-adolescent girls in real time, using vérité and intimate interviews with them as they are first lured on to the streets and the dire events which follow. The film also uses startling footage shot by the brazen pimps themselves giving a rare glimpse into how the cycle of street life begins for
      many women.

      The film identifies hope for these girls in the organization GEMS (Girls Education and Mentoring Services), a recovery center founded and run by Rachel Lloyd, herself a survivor of sexual exploitation. She and her staff are heroic and relentless in their mission to help girls sent by the court or found on the street. Given a chance to piece their lives back together, some will succeed, but many will remain suspended on the edge of two different worlds consistently battling the force that will suck them back into the underground. Very Young Girls’ unprecedented access to girls and pimps will change the way law enforcement, the media, and society as a whole look at sexual exploitation, street prostitution and human trafficking that is happening right in our own backyard.

      VERY YOUNG GIRLS
      Press praise from the
      2007 Toronto International Film Festival

      “Bold and brave, a deeply felt exposé of prostitution among the barely adolescent in urban America. A substantial work of muckraking.”
      -- Boston Phoenix

      “As sincere as it is heartbreaking …indicts not only the direct exploiters but also a society that jails 15-year-old girls for prostitution.”
      -- Vanity Fair

      “Immediately gripping … continually unsettling”
      -- Indiewire

      “Searing”
      -- Philadelphia Daily News

      “Devastating”
      -- New York Press
      "We must continue to move forward and do everything we can to outlaw legal lynching in America. We must continue to stand together in unity and to demand a moratorium on all executions. You must stay strong. You must continue to hold your heads up, and to be there. We will prevail. Keep marching Black people. They are killing me tonight. They are murdering me tonight." -- Excerpts of Last Words of Bro. Shaka Sankofa, an innocent man executed by the state of Texas, 6/22/00. www.myspace.com/nattyreb7

      Yeah, I saw this documentary on one of the premium cable channels. This joint shows the real side of pimpin' and hoein' (the flesh-game). Not like that watered-down b***s*** they use to show on HBO.

      I highly recommend people who haven't to check it out and pass it around.
