All good things start with a catalyst–ours was Slavery No More. Towards the end of last year, we attended a one-day Slavery No More conference at a local church. This blog is a result of our experience at the conference; our response to the urgent call for change we were presented with.
Slavery No More is doing something similar to what we are trying to do with this blog, but with a specific focus: Slavery & Human Trafficking. According to their website, Slavery No More’s mission is “to resource a diversity of the most effective organizations working to combat and abolish modern-day slavery and human trafficking, and to create awareness and a diversity of opportunities for meaningful personal engagement.” In light of this mission, Slavery No More puts on numerous Anti-Slavery and Trafficking focused conferences each year as well as sponsors various other related events. In addition, a quick visit to their website reveals a plethora of different organizations, products and ways to “take action” in this abolition movement.
We encourage you to at least check out their Facebook page or visit the Slavery No More website and check-out the page entitled “products that free.” If you are anything like us, you’re probably always wondering what you can do and how you can join the fight against these injustices with limited time and resources. The answer: You can be more aware of where and how you spend your money. Dare to buy and give “products that free”–that’s one small but meaningful contribution you can make to the anti-slavery & human trafficking movement today.
