End It Movement - 02/13/2020: A Day To “Shine A Light on Slavery”
Human trafficking and modern slavery still exist in our world today. Today, February 13, is a day set aside to raise awareness of this issue and as a call to action for people to get involved in the fight to end these forms of modern slavery.
“If anything is wrong, slavery is wrong.” -Abraham Lincoln
