March 23, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |



March 20, 2015 on The Michael Slate Show he played an interview with Kim Longinotto, the director of Dreamcatcher, and Brenda Myers-Powell. Dreamcatcher is a vivid portrait of Brenda Myers-Powell, a former prostitute, and co-founder of the Dreamcatcher Foundation, who helps women and young girls break the cycle of sexual abuse and exploitation. The Dreamcatcher Foundation works to prevent the sexual exploitation of at-risk youth.

"It is an act against human nature to enslave a woman and make her prostitute her body for the services or for another person to gain money. And all kinds of rights are taken away from her—the right to choose, the right to be anything that she is....for another person to walk up and open up his wallet and say 'I can buy you' and look at you as if you are a piece of merchandise...We take human rights away when we enslave women in human trafficking...."

—Brenda Myers-Powell
