LexisNexis-Sponsored REDLIGHT Film Debuts on Showtime

LexisNexis-Sponsored REDLIGHT Film Debuts on Showtime

 

On September 9, 2010, REDLIGHT, the powerful feature documentary by filmmaker and anti-human trafficking activist Guy Jacobson, made its television debut on SHOWTIME. As the result of LexisNexis' support of this project, the company received an Executive Producer credit for the film and was the proud sponsor of the 2010 World Premiere in New York City.

The film is narrated by Lucy Liu, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and exposes the global issue of human trafficking through profiling the real-life stories of child victims and two remarkable advocates for change: Somaly Mam and Mu Sochua.

Robert Rigby-Hall, Senior Vice President, Global Human Resources, LexisNexis Group and chairman of the Somaly Mam Foundation board of directors, said, "We are incredibly proud to be associated with a documentary that follows the work of two truly amazing women, Mu Sochua and Somaly Mam.  Somaly has been my personal heroine since I first met her in October 2007 while travelling in Cambodia to see her work. But the atrocities we see in this documentary also occur in major cities around the world, including the United States. As a result, our work to raise awareness and stop human trafficking has spread across the globe."

Raising awareness for the issue of human trafficking is an important part of our efforts to advance the Rule of Law. As a result, LexisNexis partners with a number of NGOs (Non-Government Organization), governments and associations across the globe to tackle this issue.

Robert said, "We can all be proud to work for a company that is genuinely trying to affect social change by combating human trafficking - this epidemic we call modern-day slavery."

Human trafficking, the illegal trade of human beings for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor, is one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world today - now tied with the illegal arms industry as the second-largest, international criminal enterprise after the illegal drug trade. According to the U.S. Department of State's 2010 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report, approximately one out of every 555 people in the world is a victim of human trafficking.
