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


#enditmovement exists to bring various organizations together to give a voice to the voiceless by raising awareness. In solidarity, people all over the world have taken a selfie with a red X on their hands today to begin conversations about this issue that spreads all across the world.

EndItMovement Mission Statement:

Born out of the belief that even one person trapped in slavery is too many, #ENDITMOVEMENT is a coalition of the leading organizations in the world in the fight for freedom. Each of our amazing coalition partners are doing the work, on the ground, everyday, to bring awareness prevention, rescue, and restoration. Joined by students and Senators, Nonprofits and Fortune 500s, END IT is each of us standing for what's right until the number of men, women, and children suffering in silence moves from 40 million, to ZERO.

I can appreciate the movement to end a bad thing. I more so appreciate that you didnt mention America as the only place that had involvement with slavery. It occured in many countries and still exists today. Lets jam, rock, and pay respect to all humans!

We in the states may need to deal with our past as a nation (American chattel slavery is historically one of the most violent and oppressive forms of slavery, if not the most), but that should not take away the overall focus on modern slavery. Dealing with American slavery is more of the US as a whole coming to terms with the blood we shed and admitting mistakes to assist with dealing with current and other past mistakes and more importantly stop future mistakes, while dealing with modern slavery is about more about ending the bloodshed. When talking US racism and various social issues (such as redlining), then discussing US slavery makes sense. When talking about the current global slavery market, then we have to look at it at a global level. People learn about historical horrors to avoid those mistakes. People can also deal with their nation's past while also dealing with the global present and future.

Conversations like these are exactly why I wanted to make this post today. While America definitely still has an issue with slavery, if we truly want to increase awareness of a truly global problem, we can’t limit our focus to only the US. Appreciate and respect your input here.

I dig "Lets jam, rock, and pay respect to all humans!"
