“1981. Civil War rages in El Salvador between American-supported government forces and guerillas. Refugees flee to Los Angeles and form the gang, “Los Discípulos”. Many are deported back to El Salvador and eventually form one of America’s largest human trafficking rings.” This is the backdrop for “Relentless”, inspired by true events.
“This film educates the audience on the American-supported Salvadorian Civil War, the government death squads, and Salvadorian war refugees who formed a notorious international gang that is now responsible for trafficking the majority of Central Americans to the U.S.A., making up one of America’s largest trafficking rings.”-Relentless
The award winning film RELENTLESS was screened Monday January 29th, 2018 for the Senate and the House for speedy passage of Bill 554. Currently in the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senate Bill 554 would create a safe harbor for victims of human trafficking, giving them the resources they need to recover rather than criminally charging them.
Dawn Adams of Abolish Slavery was present to speak to law makers about human trafficking, and to answer questions as well as provide statistics on human trafficking both state/nationwide
