Join the End It Movement on February 27 (next Thursday) to help “shine a light on slavery.” You can do this by marking a large red X on your hand.
Why? What is a red X going to do besides make it look like you forgot to wash your hands really well after you went out to the club?
The red X alone cannot end slavery. If it could, I’d buy stock in red Sharpies and do it every day; however, if you’re out and about the red X may induce curiosity in others, who will then ask you why you’re sporting a red X, and then you can inform them that slavery didn’t actually end with the Emancipation Proclamation and that it does, in fact, still exist all over the world, including our own “free country,” the United States. And then, BOOM, you’ve helped create awareness. Changes cannot be made if nobody knows this exists, but if everybody knows, an outrage will spread and changes WILL be made through the stirring of our hearts to this injustice. With awareness, a movement of action will spread.
There are ten great organizations joined in this coalition and all are committed to creating awareness, ending slavery, and/or rehabilitating those who are rescued out of human trafficking. You can and should check them all out here.
Once you read this, please spread the word. Share this post; share the website; wear your red X next Thursday; get involved any way you can. Over 27,000,000 imprisoned people’s voices can be heard if you help.
