How to Be a Modern-Day Abolitionist
Justin Dillon toured world-wide as a professional musician before he started hosting benefit concerts for organizations addressing the problem of modern-day slavery. His passion grew into a “rockumentary” titled “Call + Response,” that combined critically acclaimed artists such as Moby, Natasha Bedingfield and Matisyahu, with social luminaries such as Cornell West, Ashley Judd, Julia Ormond, Nicholas Kristof and Madeline Albright. The film was named one of the top documentaries of 2008, and has helped raise more than $250,000 for front-line groups helping to free slaves and rehabilitate victims. In this presentation, Dillon explains how the sex trafficking industry works and also offers insights into becoming an activist. Dillon and the film have been featured on CNN, the Today Show, MSNBC, the Dr. Phil Show, the Los Angeles Times, and other media outlets.
