Women in Media-Newark’s annual Women’s History Month film festival, which showcases and honors the work of established and emerging independent filmmakers who are predominately women, tells women’s stories of faith, courage, hope, determination and fortitude. This year, Monmouth University was proud to be a host of Women in Media-Newark’s annual Women’s History Month film festival with screenings of the short film Letters to April, and the narrative feature film, Sold.
Immediately following the screening, there was a panel on human trafficking featuring the following members of the community: Wincy Terry and Susan Panzica, from the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking; Dr. Guia Calicdan-Apostle, the Vice President of The HEAAT Foundation; Keyla Munoz, FBI; and Det. Shawn Murphy, SVU Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office. The panel was moderated by Monmouth University Professor of Political Science and Sociology, Rehka Datta.
