nest community workshops
Since the film’s release, PLAYGROUND has been used as part of training sessions and workshops for people on the frontlines across the country and we continue to work with organizations to adapt our media for training workshops for social workers, law enforcement,
judges, medical students and others who are in a position to identify and intervene in cases of child sexual exploitation. Connect with us to learn how you can bring Nest media, including PLAYGROUND to your community training.

After relocating to Mexico from Boston, both a mother and her 10-year-old daughter were kidnapped and trafficked by a cartel. Though they eventually escaped, and testified against their perpetrators, the local authorities did not provide them with protection or a way to get back home. Nest was able to assist the U.S. Embassy in Mexico by financing the repatriation of this woman and her daughter.
A 15-year-old girl was trafficked to Reno, Nevada, and after being picked up by federal authorities, requested therapeutic support in an area near her family. Nest was contacted by the FBI and we were able to provide financial assistance to fly the victim back home to Wisconsin and identified a facility for her within 45 minutes of her home.
