Texas Ending Modern Slavery Day

  • Texas State Capitol - South Steps 1100 Congress Ave Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

#Stand4Freedom Rally at the Capitol

WHAT: The Texas State Legislature has declared April 10 'TEXAS ENDING MODERN SLAVERY DAY' - All are invited at 2pm that day to #Stand4Freedom as we rally on the south steps of the Capitol in Austin!

WHY: Texas is at the forefront of addressing modern slavery, and Texas' elected leaders support and recognize the growing abolition movement statewide and nationally. Moreover, 2015 is poised to be a game-changer of a year in the fight against modern slavery. This rally will showcase truly unprecedented opportunities for all Texans who want to join and continue leading this fight.

We will be rallying to show support for the #EndSlaveryAct and for Slave-Free Cities throughout Texas and the entire country!

Global leader International Justice Mission and local leader Allies Against Slavery will be sharing how you can join in making these initiatives a reality.

Students who have been standing for freedom all week will be coming from around the state to #Stand4Freedom together.

And SAvery Food Truck will be nearby to nourish everyone when we are done! 10% of all their proceeds go to fight modern slavery around the globe. Grilled Cheesin' for a Reason!

This event is FREE in all senses of the word. See you on the Capitol steps!
