Not Today

DEFEND the weak and the fatherless, UPHOLD the cause of the poor and oppressed, RESCUE the weak and the needy, DELIVER them from the hand of the wicked.
Psalm 82:3-4

Slavery and human trafficking are huge problems.  Thankfully there are ministries and organizations that are shining a light on slavery and calling us to action. A new movie is being released this Friday, April 12th that is shining a light on the sex trade industry in India.  Not Today is a  movie  produced by the Friends Church in Yorba Linda, CA.  The story is of a wealthy young man, Caden,  who finds himself in India on a whim with his friends.  He will never be the same after an encounter with a father and daughter who are at the bottom of the Caste system.  Caden finds a world that few of us in here in the U.S. have experienced... the thriving world of human trafficking.  After Caden feels guilty for not helping this man, he goes back to find that this father has been forced to sell  his daughter into slavery.   I am excited to see this movie.  Unfortunately, it is opening only in certain cities. Not Today will be opening in cities in CA, CO, FL, GA, MD, OH, OR, TN, TX, VA and WA.   Here is a list of the current cities it will be playing in.  If Not Today is playing in your city or near you, please consider going!
