MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 22, 2011 – Actor, filmmaker and humanitarian Michael Cory Davis is set to speak to students at Westmount High School (4350 Ste. Catherine Street West) on Wednesday, November 23 (9:15 a.m.) regarding a cause close to his heart: human trafficking.
In 2003, while shooting two feature length films for the sci-fi channel in Sofia, Bulgaria, Davis learned of the growing number of young girls and women forcefully taken from Bulgaria and other Balkan countries and exploited as prostitutes. Devastated by a 13 year old Bulgarian girl's story of being abducted, Davis was inspired to write and direct Svetlana's Journey by joining forces with the Bulgarian Annex of the United Nations Face-to-Face International, an agency created to stop human trafficking and promote equal rights for women.
Over the course of his acting career, Davis has appeared on shows such as CSI: NY, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Community as well as spent four years on the daytime soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.
