The abolition of child trafficking and exploitation. Nothing less.
Our mission. Our purpose. The end of child trafficking and exploitation. It’s an audacious goal, and it’s a goal we at Love146 have been working towards for over 15 years now. Along the way, we have seen the most beautiful and most gruesome parts of humanity.
We’ve seen children find freedom, we’ve witnessed traffickers brought to justice, and we’ve seen volunteers rise up in their communities and say “No more!”
Shine a Light on Slavery Day, on February 22nd, is part of the growing movement of people coming together to take a stand against human trafficking. It’s a day for us to celebrate how far we’ve come and rally for the fight ahead. It’s a day for us to take a stand, to join together and use our collective voices to say no more. It’s a day when you can look around and see how many others are standing with alongside you in this conviction. We are here to fight until the abolition of trafficking and exploitation is complete.
Days like today remind us we are not alone. There are thousands of people around the world each fighting to end trafficking in their own way. At Love146, one of our core values is collaboration. Shine a Light on Slavery Day is a chance for us to celebrate together with our partners, our volunteers, and like-minded passionate people we have never met. Though we may be separated by distance, we are united in our pursuit of the end child trafficking and exploitation. Nothing less.
The red X on our hands is a symbol – and it’s just the beginning. In the words of our president and co-founder, Rob Morris,
“At the end of the day, these symbols didn’t bring about any meaningful change. But the people behind them did. A symbol doesn’t change anything. People do.”
