This year I have decided to join A21 for their 6th annual Walk For Freedom on October 19th 2019. #WalkForFreedom is a global event that raises awareness and funds for the fight against human trafficking.
When we come together to advance the fight against slavery we can be the reason that a child is prevented from being forced to beg on the streets of Thailand—the reason that there is someone to pick up a hotline call from a victim at 3am in South Africa— the reason a survivor finds healing and restoration through our Freedom Center in America. Our actions truly can lead to change on such a level.
According to the latest report on forced labour by the ILO (International Labour Organisation) There are an estimated 40.3 million victims are trapped in modern-day slavery.

A21 is an organisation that is very near and dear to my heart – the work they do truly is life transforming for so many people. I have been following and supporting for over a year now, which is why I’m so excited to be a part of a walk this year hosted in Edinburgh.
Why don’t you join a walk in your area? If there are none (which you can check online) in your area why not sign up to host a walk?
The walk for freedom is an event that is free to participate in -all you need to do is register your spot and you’re good to go! Invite your friends and family to join you and make a day out of it while making a difference!
