slavery still exists

daily reminder that slavery still exists, 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, there are still an estimated 30 million slaves globally, one in every 5000 people in the usa are slaves, human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking)– it generates a profit of $32 billion every year, and the people who are targeted for trafficking are some of the poorest and most vulnerable people on the planet

SLAVERY IS WRONG.

YOU KNOW IT. WE KNOW IT. AS A COUNTRY, WE’VE OFFICIALLY KNOWN IT SINCE 1863. BUT HERE’S SOMETHING YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW – SLAVERY STILL EXISTS. WE WANT EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE 27 MILLION MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN, JUST LIKE THEM, LIVING IN THE SHADOWS. IN BROTHELS. IN FACTORIES. IN QUARRIES. WORKING AS SLAVES. IN 161 COUNTRIES. INCLUDING OUR OWN. WE ARE HERE TO SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY. NO MORE BONDAGE. NO MORE SEX TRAFFICKING. NO MORE CHILD LABORERS. NO MORE, STARTING NOW.
