We partnered with the Fledgling Fund and Women Make Movies to present a series of public screenings of the award-winning documentary 'Dreamcatcher', a film that explores the hidden world of prostitution through the eyes of one of its survivors, Brenda Myers-Powell. A former teenage prostitute who worked the streets of Chicago, Brenda defied the odds to become a powerful advocate for change in her community. With warmth and humor, Brenda gives hope to those who have none. Her story is their inspiration.
The screening tour visited several US cities from September to November 2015. Post-screening discussions featured Brenda Myers-Powell and producer Lisa Stevens, plus local city advocates.
