Slavery is wrong. You know it. We know it. As a country, we’ve officially known it since 1863. But here’s something you might not know — Slavery still exists. We want every man, woman and child to know that there are 27 million men, women and children, just like them, living in the shadows. In brothels. In factories. In Quarries. Working as slaves. In 161 countries. Including our own. We are here to shine a light on slavery. No more bondage. No more sex trafficking. No more child laborers. No more, starting now. EndItMovement.com
The statistics are staggering. To think or even imagine that modern-day slavery is taking place in the United States is unthinkable — and yet it is happening. Here. Now. Of the 27 million slaves in the world, at least 200,000 of those in the United States. Take time to educate yourself about the realities of human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Find a cause or charity that supports ending slavery take action.
