“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.“
~ Martin Luther King, “Letter from Birmingham Jail” 1963
This movement needs all the help and all the talent it can muster. We need speakers and writers, doers and dreamers. We need wit and reason, passion and caring. People wise in the ways of politics. People with business savvy. People with organizing skills. We need artists and singers, poets and preachers. We need everyone who cares, all the men, women, and children who are willing to work to end slavery in our generation. We need YOU!
* Mission Statement *
Our mission is to expose and help eradicate modern-day slavery. Human trafficking inflicts untold suffering on all its victims. It deprives them of their most basic and unalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are an all volunteer grass-roots organization, bound together in common purpose: to do all we can to end this crime against humanity.
We envision a world where the root causes of human trafficking are adequately addressed. We strive to help create an enlightened society where a market will not be tolerated for the sale and illicit exploitation of human beings. We hope to see investigators adequately funded and perpetrators vigorously pursued. We wish for victims to be offered hope and healing instead of scorn and punishment.
