What is the A21 Campaign?

18 Oct

Today I would like to introduce you to the A21 Campaign.

As stated on their website,

“The A21 Campaign is comprised of individuals, organizations, government officials, and people like you who are committed to abolishing injustice in the 21st century. Our goal is to raise awareness, take legal action where appropriate, and offer rehabilitation services to rescued victims of human trafficking in order to fight this injustice from a comprehensive approach. Additionally, we want to branch out to address this issue from a preventative standpoint, aiming to cripple the human trafficking trade so there are fewer victims that need to be rescued.”

Statistics

•Trafficking in women is the second largest global organized crime today, generating approximately US$12 billion a year.

•There are 1.39 million victims of commercial sexual servitude worldwide.

•Tragically, only 1-2 percent of victims are rescued, and only 1 in 100,000 Europeans involved in trafficking are convicted.

There are many ways that you can get involved. In fact the A21 website lists out 21 ways you can help on their website here:

Key2Free

October 18th is Anti-Slavery Day.
Wear a KEY necklace, and get EVERYONE in
your sphere of influence to wear one as well.

Why should you and your friends wear a KEY necklace?

It is a symbol for FREEDOM.

By wearing a KEY necklace, you will have the opportunity tell people about HUMAN TRAFFICKING and then they will tell people, and they will tell people, and so on…

    You know that the A21 office in the U.S. is right here in Charleston. You have to come visit girl! There's too many things you're passionate about right here. Maybe you can come to Seacoast's women's conference: CHOSEN – January 24th & 25th.
