The United States Government has a moral and constitutional responsibility to ensure that American citizens do not become victims or enablers of Modern Day Slavery.
An increasing movement of people of many faiths and backgrounds, motivated by shared moral convictions, are taking an increased action to end this practice.
Please join us in challenging the United States Government and the News Media in increasing education and awareness of modern day slavery to American citizens.
Education and awareness is imperative. Educating American citizens about trafficking and providing information on how to become familiar with signs of it occurring is extremely important. Additionally, one of the most effective measures taken would be to educate our youth about this issue in order to prevent them from becoming victims of this practice.
It is difficult to imagine that people in the world today are still bought and sold, bartered for and mistreated, but the plight of modern day slavery is very real. It is still every bit as ugly as it was 200 years ago and it must end.
No matter what our religious beliefs or political affiliation, we can all agree that no human being deserves to be treated this way. Please sign this petition which will be presented to the United States Government and to the American News Media.
