In recognition of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, Fair Trade Houston will present the film #StandWithMe, the story of 9-year-old Vivienne Harr and her dream of changing the world through a lemonade stand. After seeing a photo of two enslaved boys in Nepal, Vivienne is moved to help in the only way she knows how: by setting up her lemonade stand. With the goal of freeing 500 children from slavery, she sets up her stand every day, rain or shine. In telling Vivienne’s story, #standwithme examines the realities of modern-day slavery, the role we play in it as consumers, and the importance of knowing the story behind what we buy.
