THE TURN OUT
Directed by Pearl Gluck
In a small town in Southern Appalachia, a trucker must decide if he will stand up and take action against sex trafficking at his truckstop. The Turn Out melds the testimony and talents of sex trafficking survivors, anti-trafficking activists, and truckers with the work of film professionals to create an unflinching docu-drama of moral dilemma and personal connection in the local landscape of Glouster, Ohio, Athens County, and Mineral Wells, West Virginia.
MORE ABOUT THE FILM
Listen to the Emancipation Nation Podcast with Celia Williamson and director, Pearl Gluck.
"The Turn Out lays out the realities of sex trafficking and how it happens in small town America. Gluck provides a riveting and disturbing, yet real portrayal of the realities of sex trafficking in the U.S. A great film for promoting awareness and engaging in in-depth discussions with parents and their teens." - Celia Williamson

THE SOAP PROJECT:
It starts with a simple bar of soap labeled with a number to call. And for many adolescents, it ends the nightmare of slavery and exploitation and illuminates the path to recovery. The SOAP (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) Project brings abolitionists together to fight sex trafficking at large events and within our communities. A bar of soap can become a ray of hope. The SOAP Project was founded by author, advocate and survivor, Theresa Flores. On her worst night, after being auctioned off to nearly two dozen men in a dingy, dirty, inner city Detroit motel, Theresa recalled the only item that would have reached her: a bar of soap. With that in mind, she created The SOAP Project to offer hope and a path to recovery for the thousands of trafficking victims in the United States. Not only do we rescue adolescents, but we retreats and ongoing support for survivors.
