Today – February 25 – is Shine a Light on Slavery Day.
The red X is confirmation of my desire to do my part to End It.
You can learn about the End It Movement here.
Bringing attention to modern day slavery won’t necessarily put an end to human trafficking, but it is certainly a step in the right direction. As more people become aware of the warning signs of sexual exploitation and begin to demand products made without forced or bonded labor, more of those held captive will be set free.
