The statistics are almost desensitizing. 27 million people enslaved (and counting) today. But each one of them has a name. We all do. Names/titles mean a lot to us. My legal name is Madison, but I have other names, like sister, friend, chaplin, cousin, co-worker, roommate, etc. Those who are enslaved have names/titles too. But sometimes are given different names. The trafficker may change their legal name or their identity. They are called horrid names too, like ‘slut’ ‘whore’ ‘worthless’ and many others which I won’t say. A name is a sense of dignity and they are stripped of it.
Today, on Shine a Light on Slavery day, we draw a red X on our hands to bring awareness to slavery.
But my friends, I ask, why not do more? ❌ #enditmovement #27hasaname #restoredignity
