Film Screening: "Sextortion: The Hidden Pandemic" (Maria Demeshkina Peek)

The film is an investigation into the world of online grooming and sextortion--a present-day reality for one in seven children online. By unsealing the federal case of a top-gun pilot with hundreds of victims, and interviewing survivors and their parents, this true-crime piece exposes an often-overlooked crime against children, the tactics of online predators, and the voices of parents and law enforcement poised to stop online child exploitation in its tracks.

Following the screening of the film, a panel discussion will occur.

This event is co-sponsored by the USM Center for Human Trafficking Research and Training, the Mississippi Human Trafficking Council, and the USM Office of the Dean of Students.
