In an effort to raise awareness about the plague of child trafficking, both in Alaska and across the world, the office of Rep. Sarah Vance (R-Homer) is offering free movie tickets to the new major motion film, “Sound of Freedom.”
The feature film starring Jim Caviezel will be showing at the Homer Movie Theater on July 6. The 4:30 p.m. showing will be covered by Vance’s office.
According to Rotten Tomatoes movie reviews, the film is based on the incredible true story of a federal agent (Caviezel), who rescues a young boy from ruthless child traffickers. After learning that the boy’s sister is still captive, he decides to embark on a dangerous mission to save her. With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her from a fate worse than death.
Combating human trafficking, which victimizes more than 2 million children annually, is a legislative focus for Vance. As the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, she has highlighted the issue by introducing a bill that would establish a Justice in Human Trafficking Week across Alaska.
Her aim in purchasing tickets is to give Alaskans an opportunity to learn more about how to fight this global scourge. To secure advance tickets to the July 6 screening, call 907-235-2921.
