To mark Women’s History Month, Governors State University on March 11 will host a special, free screening of “Not My Life,” a film about human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. The film is directed by Robert Bilheimer.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, which will focus on the effects of human trafficking on women in Illinois. Panelists will include Farah Baqai, an activist who ran for Congress in 2012; and representatives from the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation and Chicago Dream Center.

The program will be held in the Governors State University Center for Performing Arts from 5 to 7:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

The event is sponsored by the GSU Intellectual Life Committee, Office of International Services, Toastmasters and Lambda Pi Eta.

Governors State University is at 1 University Parkway, University Park.
