Join us for a screening of our new documentary BOOM. There will also be a talk back with the film’s producer / director Brad Riley as well as the 24 year old college grad / truck driver and sociology professor / boom community expert Dr. Tim Pippert featured in the film.
Boom is the story of a recent college graduate who moves to North Dakota to get a job in the oil fields as a trucker. While immersed in the community he is confronted by a problem bigger than he could imagine: a vast network of human trafficking and criminal activity.
This film and campaign empowers oil boom communities to recognize and respond to sexual exploitation and human trafficking. Then we give communities the tools to respond. iempathize.org/empower/oil-communities/
