We live in the Lexington and Concord area of New England - home of an important fight against injustice which led to the birth of our very nation. New Englanders are a hearty bunch, and we've never been shy about protecting our fellow humans. Massachusetts passed laws banning the practice of slavery by 1783, almost 100 years before the civil war. And the transcendentalists and abolitionists worked hand in hand throughout the 1800s to ban slavery from the country - many losing their jobs, reputations, and even lives to stand up for doing the right thing.
That was a great start...but sadly, slavery is not a thing of the past. It's one of the most profitable black market industries in the world - including right here in the US. And children are particularly vulnerable to being trafficked. Did you know 1 out of every 3 teens on the street will be lured toward prostitution within 48 hours of running away from home?*
We are walking to end human trafficking because we care. Because it's the right thing to do. Because we all have to do something to help save people from the hell of modern slavery.
Can you help us reach our goal? Any donation helps, so please give generously. We are so grateful for your support!!
