February 23rd is officially "Shine a Light on Slavery Day." The red X's are being shared by everyone from athletes, to celebrities, politicians, and then some with the purpose of bringing awareness to modern-day slavery and human trafficking.
Human trafficking affects nearly 21 million people worldwide, 1.5 million in North America, whether it's due to sexual trafficking or labor trafficking. Become a part of the #EndItMovement today.
Here's how you can help!
"Without Hope for Justice I don't know what would have happened to me or where I would be. If you didn't help me, maybe I wouldn't be alive." . . . Our Coalition Partner, @hopeforjusticeintl identifies victims, advocates in their behalf, while helping to restore and rebuild their lives. ❌#enditmovement . . . Repost: Meet Anna* She was forced to work in a factory for six months without pay, living in horrendous conditions. Your support has meant everything to her. . . . Hope for Justice supported Anna to access a place to live after her trafficking experience, as well as counseling and food parcels that she says prevented her from starving to death. We also helped her through the criminal justice process, where she saw her traffickers convicted. . . . Anna is now working and has recently got married. She said: "I want to say a big thank you to everyone who supports Hope for Justice. In fact, 'Thank you' is not enough to express my gratitude for what you have done and for all your help." . . . *Name changed and photo posed by an actor to protect the survivor's identity.
