"It is up to each and every one of us to raise our voice against crimes
that deprive countless victims of their liberty, dignity and human rights.
We have to work together to realize the equal rights promised to all by the United Nations Charter.
And we must collectively give meaning to the words of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that
“no one shall be held in slavery or servitude.”
- Ban Ki-moon
January 11th is Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the US. Human Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery. From Jan 1st-11th, we’ll be posting daily blogs with inspiration from the history of the movement to end slavery. Our resolution is to protect & defend the vulnerable and to restore & empower survivors. Join us in beginning 2012 by pausing to recharge our spirits as we carry on towards the end of slavery and the sexual exploitation of children.
