Senator Sherrod Brown in collaboration with the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CAT-W), Shared Hope International, Rights4Girls, and World Without Exploitation invites you to The Trap: The Deadly Sex-Trafficking Cycle in American Prisons, and film screening and panel discussion with survivors and experts.

In 2018, following an eighteen-month investigation by human rights journalist Annie Kelly, and filmmaker and journalist Mei-Ling McNamara, The Guardian released a provocative and terrifying investigative documentary, The Trap. The film, which features national anti-trafficking survivor advocates, Marian Hatcher and Nikki Bell, explores the scourging coercive tactics traffickers use to prey on vulnerable incarcerated women.
