16-02-2019 12:00:00 16-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York "Art Benefit Raises Funds for Human Trafficking Awareness Play" In 2017, more than 3,500 sex trafficking cases were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, and there are thousands of cases that go unreported because far too often the victims of trafficking have been silenced through a fear of recriminations and violence by their handlers. That is why Mirage Theatre is working with playwright Melisa Tien, a NY Foundation of the Arts Fellow and member of New Dramatists to create a play that gives voice to victims and survivors of human trafficking. Her script and the resulting production will confront the ordeals faced by the most vulnerable members of our society who live in a form of modern slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=277849 Chinatown Soup Gallery Chinatown Soup Gallery
