Waste-free + Slave-free

Waste-free + Slave-free

The Slave-Free City vision rests on the belief that everyone has a role to play in the fight for freedom. No one organization or sector of the community can overcome the issue of modern slavery alone. That's why we are encouraged when community members like in.gredients think creatively to mobilize their business platform for social change.

 

The True Cost of Our Things

The True Cost of Our Things

What is your favorite thing to wear? What makeup product do you find yourself repurchasing over and over? What coffee is your go-to morning pick me up? Have you ever thought about where all of your favorites come from and the process involved in creating them? Jordan Ring had her purchasing practices turned upside when her eyes were opened to the world of human and labor trafficking and how she (and probably you) was unknowingly supporting these atrocities. Today she shares practical ways we can all start to rethink our role in the fight against modern slavery . . . and it could start with a purse!

#SurvivorStrong15

This year I have provided support for over 50 survivors of sex trafficking with my team at Allies Against Slavery. Through referrals, mentoring, writing workshops, career coaching and our annual Survivor Leader Retreat, I have witnessed the fierce resilience and courage of the women and girls we serve. As you join with family and friends over the holiday season to celebrate and offer gratitude, I invite you to join me in showing love and support for Survivor Leaders through our #SurvivorStrong15 campaign. With your donation, you will send a message of hope to women and girls who are transitioning from being victims to survivors to leaders and creators of change.

Let the Change Be You

Let the Change Be You

It seems that it’s only happening overseas // But then I turn to see what’s staring back at me... // I’ve seen her face somewhere // A mother, a sister, a daughter, a woman, which represents queen //

These lyrics by Corie P. unveil the haunting truth that human trafficking happens not only around the world but around the corner. This hidden crime is all around us, if only we have eyes to see.
