On Thursday, April 11, AABANY hosted a screening of “Blowin’ Up,” a documentary that explores the complex realities of sex work in New York City and the compassionate approach of a human trafficking court in Queens County.
Now on October 21, 2019, at 10 p.m. the full length feature documentary about the Queens Human Trafficking Intervention Court will be having its national broadcast on PBS’s POV (Point of View).
The film features AABANY member Honorable Toko Serita, Queens Supreme Court, as well as other heroines of the Human Trafficking Intervention Court, that work with victims of sexual exploitation who face prostitution-related charges.
We encourage everyone to mark their calendars to see this powerful film. Check your local PBS station for it’s scheduled air time in your neighborhood by clicking here!
