This is exactly what is needed and I couldn't be more excited about it. (!!!)
Check out the END IT movement. Seven fantastic anti-slavery and pro-justice organizations are joining forces to "shine a light on slavery." Collaboration is SO important, and this news gives me incredible hope. The participating organizations include:
- Made in a Free World
- Free the Slaves
- Polaris Project
- International Justice Mission (IJM)
- Not For Sale
They already have lots of cool stuff on the website, including some upcoming events--such as February 27th's "Disappear for a Day on Social Media." There's also a free activist toolkit and a pledge to sign where you can keep in contact with END IT and what you can be doing to play a role.
Below is the ad that ran in today's USA Today:
And I love this sentiment perhaps best of all:
"You don't have to give your money to END IT.
Just give your voice."
Because if you're reading this right now, the freedom of voice is something you have.
So please use it--starting today.
