CALL+RESPONSE is a feature length documentary film that reveals the world’s 27 million
dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history.
CALL+RESPONSE takes viewers deep undercover where slavery is thriving -- from the child
brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India -- and reveals that in 2007, Slave
Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.
Luminaries on the issue such as Madeleine Albright, Julia Ormond, Ashley Judd, Nicholas
Kristof, and many other prominent political and cultural figures offer first hand accounts of
this 21st century trade. Performances from Grammy-winning and critically acclaimed artists
including Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Cold War Kids, Matisyahu, Imogen Heap, Talib
Kweli, Five For Fighting, Switchfoot, members of Nickel Creek and Tom Petty’s
Heartbreakers and Rocco Deluca move this disturbing information into inspiration for
stopping it. Former child soldier and current African hip hop celebrity, Emanuel Jal, gives a
chilling performance recounting his experiences and calling for help for others experiencing
destruction in Uganda and Sudan. Dr. Cornel West connects the music of the American
slave fields to the popular music we listen to today, and offers this connection as a rallying
cry for the modern abolitionist movement currently brewing. To see the trailer visit:

“What can we do to help?”
Human rights activism is changing. The world’s issues cannot be solved alone by governments
and non-profits. Solutions require community-based participation. We promote the concept of
OPEN-SOURCE ACTIVISM whereby a
