Biography

Rebecca Pober Citrin is a college sophomore at Vassar College from Daphne, Alabama who filmed a documentary on human trafficking to build awareness of the issue for her Girl Scout Gold Award project. However, it has grown into much more than that. Rebecca drove across the country to Omaha, Nebraska to meet with and film FBI Special Agents, an IRS Agent, U.S. federal prosecutor, local law enforcement officers, and victims - all helping fight human trafficking. She drove to Birmingham, Alabama to interview the father of a young
girl killed at the hands of a trafficker, an adult survivor who runs a safe house program that assists victims, and Alabama State Representative Jack Williams who co-authored legislation that criminalized human trafficking in the state of Alabama. During Fall 2013 to Spring 2014, Rebecca worked with one of the best film directors in the Southeast to create a documentary that shines a much needed light on this tragic issue. Federal, state, and local law enforcement gave Rebecca guidance and insight along the way. The Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama kept Rebecca focused and on task to keep the documentary relevant and sustainable. Rebecca and fighters against human trafficking are making an impact on this important issue and hope to encourage others to take action and join the fight.
