Our goal for starting this blog wasn’t radical and our intention was fairly simple, to educate and empower others to find ways to get involved in the fight to eliminate human trafficking. We recognize that knowledge is power and educating other about this human rights and social justice issue is at the center of combating this epidemic. We are not here to reinvent the wheel and to create our own action steps, rather we hope that this space can be a place where you come to get ideas and be inspired by work that is already going on. We hope you make this journey personal and choose to take action in something that interest you; maybe you’ll find that in the links provided below that are intended to promote education and awareness of this issue, or maybe you’ll find it in the petitions discussed below, where you can take on a more political approach, or perhaps you want to get more hands on by attending a local event or volunteering at a local organization. Whatever it is that you choose to do, big or small, we hope you put 100% into it and know that you are helping to make a difference in the lives of countless men, women, and children in your own backyard and around the world.
