Human trafficking -- stop the nightmare | Kim Dempster | TEDxFultonStreet
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. If you were taken into captivity, what dreams might you have on the first night you realized what had happened? Whether it’s an adult laborer or a girl taken for sex trafficking, you are immediately transported to those visually arresting thoughts and invited to feel what it’s like to be trapped without a voice.
In this presentation, Kim discusses how the project was created, and screens some of the public service announcements (PSAs) she created to increase global awareness.
Kim Dempster has put her unique signature on numerous media including commercials, music videos, inter-active and narrative film. She has always demonstrated a great range of emotion and connection with her audience.
Always attracted to projects with a social conscience, most recently Kim teamed up with the NGO "Freedom For All", to create an awareness campaign against human trafficking.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
