Here are comments from the participants:
“As many nations around the globe attempt to fight sex trafficking, many consider legalizing prostitution. The two film makers, Jared and Michelle Brock, founders of ‘Hope for the Sold’, traveled across 10 countries to answer the question, “How can we prevent sexual exploitation before it happens in the first place?”
– Penny Rogers, St Augustine Parish Social Justice Ministry.
“More than 100 people from around the Fraser Valley came out to watch this very informative film and become informed about the various approaches to sex trafficking and prostitution around the globe.”
– Angelina Stiglich, St Joseph Parish Langley and CWL member.
“The film examines prostitution and trafficking in the context of differing legal models of prostitution worldwide. Approximates 60 people from St. Luke’s and neighbouring parishes watched the film and heard an excellent summation of the current status of prostitution laws in Canada from Sister Nancy Brown.”
– Barbara Renaud, St Luke Parish Maple Ridge and CWL member.

Is Bill C-36 an acceptable prostitution law?
As victims of traffickers get younger and younger, the youth are engaged in a battle they never prepared for. “Chosen” is a 20-minute film from Shared Hope International that tells the shocking true story of two teenage girls deceived into trafficking. Eighteen-year-old Brianna was an honor-roll student and cheerleader, and worked at a local café. Thirteen-year-old Lucy was an active member of her youth group, and a volunteer in her community. Their stories will present the truth behind sex trafficking and hopefully protect others from being “chosen.”
On May 6, the first Richmond Young Adults joint event between St. Paul Young Adults Community and Canadian Martyrs hosted a free screening of “Chosen”, as well as a discussion on the topic of human trafficking, featuring Sister Nancy Brown and Gwendoline Allison.
“The film “Chosen” provided a realistic depiction on how wide-spread the issue of human trafficking is amongst our communities. It created a real context of how human trafficking predators are lurking everywhere – preying upon young girls that are the most vulnerable. It’s frightening to know that the stories shared could have happened to anyone of our teens at our parish, our friends, our loved ones. It demonstrated how important it is to have a connected community that watches out for signs of trafficking, and the need to equip ourselves with knowledge on how to protect individuals who are, or could potentially be, trafficked.”
– Laura Lam, St. Paul Young Adult Community
