(BPRW) DreamCatcher Collective's "TRAFFIK" – Games that Grown-Ups Play at The 14th Street Playhouse
(BLACK PR WIRE) – Atlanta, GA – DreamCatcher Collective brings a socially conscious play to the stage that deals with an issue that is plaguing Atlanta, GA – Human Trafficking. Jacquay Waller's “Traffik: Games that Grown-ups Play” allows its audience to take a peek into the secret world of human trafficking. It is a world masked by stereotypes, judgments and assumptions. We look into the faces of strangers and decide that they are somehow responsible for their negative circumstances. A heavy accent must be a sign of ignorance and a desire to take advantage of hard-working Americans. Forced servitude exists, but not in the United States of America. The stage play “Traffik” challenges these beliefs and compels the audience to re-examine how they judge others.
Fact- Atlanta Magazine named the city of Atlanta as "Sex City", the capital of sexual exploitation in the U.S.
Fact- Atlanta is known as the number one hub of human trafficking and child sex exploitation in the United States.
