18 didn't green light the sale of her body. 18 didn't make this about "choice." 18 didn't mean fighting alone.
Inspired by the real experiences of survivors, After Eighteen gives us a glimpse into the lives of 5 women impacted by the commercial sex trade. Diverse in background and history, these women are linked by their will to regain freedom and their quest for justice.

SLUT & NOW THAT WE'RE MEN: The IMPACT Performances
"We were too young to vote– but we're not too young to make an impact. Our goal with these performances is to raise awareness and funds in support of our peers who are now in danger of losing access to health care, counseling, and a range of other services under the new administration. We are determined to use our art to rise-up, resist and create safe spaces for conversation."
