A feature documentary film

“My passion is to create a film that sparks discussion and change globally, as human trafficking knows no boundaries in terms of race, religion, or socio-economic status. Boys are also being trafficked, and I was devastated to learn about this from Bob Williams, CEO of Bob’s House of Hope.”
For years, Malinda has been passionate about helping victims of trafficking during her years as a firefighter and paramedic – and has identified a massively prominent lack of training surrounding human trafficking – and the unspoken of epidemic surrounding the sexual assault of young boys and men. Malinda has worked tirelessly to produce and direct the documentary #BoysToo in order to raise awareness on this important topic – because no human deserves to be a victim of human trafficking.
My devotion and passion for this project is to create a film that sparks discussion and spurs lasting change in our communities both in Texas, nationally and globally. Trafficking is a global issue with global consequences.
I was devastated to find out through further research, education, and personal experiences that human trafficking knows no boundaries when it comes to race, religion or socio-economic position. It can be found everywhere – in the USA and globally – and perpetrators can be anyone, including women.
I HAD to do something, so I used the skills I have to begin the journey of making #BoysToo, a documentary aimed at raising awareness about this horrific issue. It is my hope that through this film, I will be able to help people recognize and prevent more cases of human trafficking.
Growing up, I heard the old adage, “It takes a village to raise a child”. While the village is ever changing, I believe this concept to be true at its core. Would you band together with me to be a part of the village whose mission is to keep them safe?
