SPOTLIGHT: The A21 Campaign

I have said for a while now that i wanted to take time each month to focus on a group or organization that i am passionate about. A group that is making a difference in our world. This month that organization is The A21 Campaign. 

The A21 Campaign is an organization with a mission to Abolish Injustice in the 21st Century. They state that, "27 million is almost impossible to long as there is one victim of Human Trafficking that is all the motivation we need."

I agree that this is a hard topic to talk or think about but if we don't we are ignoring it and while we ignore it MILLIONS of lives are being destroyed. PLEASE take a minute to watch this video about the A21 Campaign....Is it hard to hear? YES. Will it break you heart? YES, and it should. Will it give you hope and encouragement to join this fight? YES, I sure hope so! 

The Problem:
Human trafficking is an organized criminal industry that affects every nation. While the statistics can seem overwhelming, it is important to remember that every number represents the life of a victim. The A21 Campaign has recognized a significant need in the region of Europe, and is committed to combating this injustice through rescuing one life at a time.
