Creighton University and Union Pacific’s LEAD organization are inviting the public to Omaha’s first screening of the documentary Gridshock, at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 12, in the Harper Center auditorium on the Creighton campus.
The documentary, by film maker Vanessa McNeal, looks at the hidden and disturbing reality behind the sex trafficking demand in the Midwest. It is focused on the buyers who create the demand for sex trafficking and the culture of impunity that hides and protects them.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion about sex trafficking with local advocacy groups and organizations providing community education and resources for victims.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required as seating is limited. Visit https://omahagridshockscreening.eventbrite.com/ to register.
