"Making socially conscious movies highlighting the injustice of Human Trafficking, child marriage, child labor and spiritual abuse, then directly aiding the survivors upon whom the films shed light"

About Us

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

– Sir Edmund Burke


It’s one thing to say that we do the difficult work, but below is an example of the situations we deal with on a regular basis.

In this scenario, our founder, Diana Davis, received an IMessage forwarded to her by another MMAD family member. She instantly pinned the location and found the closest establishment still open at 9:00 pm. Knowing that time was of the essence, Diana directed the trafficked girl and called the establishment, instructing the staff to call the police and an ambulance.

In situations like this, a delay of even a minute could easily result in the victim disappearing forever, condemned to a lifetime of sexual abuse and torture.

Ultimately, she made it and was taken to the hospital where a rape kit was performed. Diana gave the police the address where the girl was being held captive, and the officers were waiting when the unsuspecting traffickers returned.

The men were arrested! The DNA was a match and they were charged as the young survivor bravely faced her predators by testifying in court. Diana testified remotely and the defendants were all found guilty. Today, the perpetrators are in prison and the young woman actually works in the very same establishment which initially opened their doors to her during the rescue.

In the years to follow, MoviesMakingADifference provided her with basic needs, got her into a domestic violence shelter, and eventually supplied her with a car of her own

This was a successful conclusion, but unfortunately, more often than not, that isn’t the case. Please join us and contribute in MakingADifference.

A Poem From One Of Our Survivors

There’s no reason, there’s no rhyme

I found myself blindsided by

A feeling that I’ve never known

I’m dealing with it on my own

Phone is quiet, walls are bare

I drink myself to sleep, who cares?

No one even has to know

I’m dealing with it on my own I got way too much time to be this hurt

Somebody help, it’s getting worse What do you do with a broken heart?

Once the light fades, everything is dark

Way too much whiskey in my blood

I feel my body giving up Can I hold on for another night?

What do I do with all this time? Every thought’s when it gets late

Put me in a fragile state

I wish I wasn’t going home

Dealing with it on my own

I’m praying but it’s not enough

I’m done, I don’t believe in love

Learning how to let it go

Dealing with it on my own

Human Trafficking

The United Nations defines human trafficking as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by improper means (such as force, abduction, fraud, or coercion) for an improper purpose including forced labor or sexual exploitation

Human smuggling is the facilitation, transportation or illegal entry of a person(s) across an international border, in violation of one or more countries laws, either clandestinely or through deception. Often, human smuggling is conducted in order to obtain a financial or other material benefit for the smuggler.

MoviesMakingADifference a 501(c)(3), addresses, raises awareness and then aids the survivors of such crimes. 

Child Brides

As the issue of forced child marriage gains visibility around the world, many Americans remain unaware of the atrocity in their own backyards

Most are oblivious to the fact that this is human trafficking. These terrified young girls are traded between communities in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada as sex slaves and for domestic servitude. This horrendous practice is similar to the breeding of horses to ‘breed the best stock“, with traffickers hoping for more strapping young males for child labor. In 27 states in the U.S., the law does not specify any minimum age which a child cannot marry. 

In a survey of marriage licenses, at least 167,000 children under 18 were married in the U.S. between 2000 and 2010. Statistics are not available for later years. Forced marriage has several important parallels with human trafficking. Each year, thousands of girls are removed from U.S. schools and forced to be married. Girls who resist or refuse these marriages may be subjected to physical and emotional abuse, confinement in the home, or even death. Once married, victims experience increased rates of infant and maternal mortality, rape, domestic violence and suicide.  The coercion, exploitation and ongoing violence involved in these scenarios mirror the critical traits of human trafficking

Child Labor

It is hard to believe that in the U.S., children are being forced to build municipal projects, work in factories and on construction sites, ending their education and their childhood. But it is happening every day from coast to coast in America.

In fact, all of the young men who have joined MoviesMakingADifference were forced into hard labor by age 9.

They are then discarded when of no more use. With lack of education or pay, suicide and addiction or remaining victims of human trafficking are often their future.

Very few reports are available and most are outdated. As of 2019, it is estimated that 14,000 are on still on the streets, right here in the U.S.

Spiritual Abuse

Imagine being just 14 years old, never seeing the outside world, and being forced to marry a man 30 years your senior. Imagine being sexually abused over and over at such a delicate age, not really even knowing what was happening to you, or even what being loved meant. Imagine that happening to your daughter or son for that matter. Can you imagine being a mother of 6 children, all the product of rape, and anticipating the same such horrible act on a child you loved

This is not the story of one child or just Colorado City, but 1000s in our country, Canada and Mexico. Many brave girls and boys, women and men have escaped the confinement of such communities and with the help of MoviesMakingADifference. They now have a job, a home, clothes and food for their children. Many have scholarships for drug and alcohol treatment. Many have gotten GEDs with our help.
