Documentary tackles prostitution

Are you concerned about the possibility of human trafficking in the Cowichan Valley? Cowichan Women Against Violence and Community-based Victims Services are bring the documentary Red Light Green Light back to the area for a special screening Thursday starting at 7 p.m. at the VIU Cowichan Campus lecture hall.

Former Valley resident Jared (Jay) Brock and his wife, Michelle, are responsible for the powerful film on the subject of legalizing prostitution.

"Many people assume that legalizing prostitution will bring regulation to the industry and help protect vulnerable women working in it. This could not be further from the truth," Jay Brock said when the film was shown in Cowichan in December 2013.

Following the documentary, the community will be encouraged to discuss what they’ve seen with filmmakers, RCMP representatives and other social responders. Admission is by donation.
