The Soroptimist Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula are hosting the event at the Little Theater at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Representatives of the Port Angeles Police Department, federal Department of Homeland Security and Washington Engage, a nonprofit organization that aims to prevent sex trafficking in Washington state, will be on the panel.
A suggested donation of $10 will help defray costs for the Soroptimist Stop Trafficking program and support Washington Engage.
Released in 2012, “Rape for Profit” takes the audience undercover for an up-close look at the nature of the sex trade in Seattle.
"Featuring unique footage of Seattle's High-Risk and Street Crime units at work, this film puts a face to human trafficking and the young girls (some as young as 12) who are at risk," according to the Soroptimist clubs.
For more information, phone Martha Hurd at 360-457-0255.
If there is suspicion of human trafficking, phone the confidential National Human Trafficking Hotline at 888-373-7888.
