In collaboration with the WHY SLAVERY? Campaign, Samilia Foundation together with the St.Louis University Law Department hosted screenings of the WHY SLAVERY? short films and the feature-length film Maid in Hell,followed by a Q&A with experts in the field of human trafficking law.

The following short films; I was a Yazidi Slave, A Woman Captured, Storm Makers, Selling Children, One Bride Seven Cows or a Box of Heroin were selected to instigate discussion on the various manifestations of modern slavery. The initiative was particularly successful reaching 500 students in the law department. The screenings were accompanied by a Q&A with Charles-Eric Clesse, a Labour Prosecutor and Jean-Pierre Jacques a Lecturer at the University who specializes in human trafficking.

We are delighted that the WHY SLAVERY? series is being used to engage and inform budding lawyers about the lived realities of slavery through the stories of the survivors. This collaboration is a shining example of how documentary films can reach their full educational potential, through effective partnership with educational institutions such as St Louis.

We’re committed to ensuring that the WHY SLAVERY? documentaries continue to engage a broad cross sector of society; from students to decision-makers and human-rights defenders. If you’d like to join us in this mission and host a WHY SLAVERY? event then please contact us at: whyslavery@thewhy.dk

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
