It’s a simple yet profound message. And in the fight against the human trafficking and modern-day slavery — a tragedy that affects nearly 46 million people worldwide — it’s a message we all need to hear.
Fighting the injustice of human trafficking is something all of us can do. It’s something all of us must do.
Each of us can fight human trafficking by doing the things we already do, for justice.
If you’re a photographer or artist, use your skills for justice. Bring awareness to the realities of modern-day slavery through your art. Your skills help soften hearts.
If you’re a doctor or nurse, use your skills for justice. Learn how to identify trafficking victims who may come to you for treatment. Your skills help save lives.
If you’re a business leader or a fundraising guru, use your skills for justice. Become a volunteer board member or consultant for organizations that fight human trafficking (like this one). Your skills help strengthen the cause.
Ending modern-day slavery won’t be easy, and it won’t happen overnight. It’s a cause that demands all of us — an army of the ordinary — working for justice.
