Check out and talk about the Global Forum on Human Trafficking :)
The Countdown begins: 60 days until... The Global Forum on Human Trafficking :)
Announcing more Outstanding Abolitionists from across the Globe!
...a woman gives 2 street kids her business card...and 600 children show up in her office looking for safe haven. Today that same woman runs one of the most dynamic aftercare programs in Latin America. Lucy Borja is just one of the many forerunning Abolitionists who will be featured at the Global Forum, Oct 8-9 in San Diego.
...that just this month over 50 children, aged 11-17 were rescued out of slavery on chocolate farms in the Ivory Coast, an area continuously effected by forced labor and slavery. Unjust labor conditions and lack of transparency in the global supply chain are perpetuating modern-day slavery. As a consumer no product is safe, not even the chocolate we eat.
Bama Athreya, global labor rights expert and Executive Director of the International Labor Rights Forum, will join a celebrated list of experts to discuss how best to end slave labor in the global supply chain, making the "Monitoring Supply Chains" panel discussion a must see!
You can join Lucy, Bama & many more at the inaugural
Global Forum on Human Trafficking.

Massachusetts Co-State Directors Anita Coco and Sarah Durfey are drawing on their state's abolitionist history to build an active operation working to re-abolish slavery in their own backyard. The Not For Sale Campaign's local operation in the state launched less than a year ago, but it takes two Directors to stay on top of all of the exciting events and activities. Coco and Durfey bring their own strengths and skills to the investigative, educational, and outreach initiatives.
Here are some of the highlights:
* Durfey and one of her volunteers recently completed the Investigators Academy and are now developing a comprehensive mapping project within Boston
* Coco staffed a Freedom Table at a recent 4th of July parade; and
* Both are recruiting volunteers to lead Bible studies and educate congregations about modern-day slavery.
Last week Not For Sale served as the ministry sponsor of SoulFest, New England's premier Christian music festival. Coco and Durfey were instrumental in the event's success, meanwhile recruiting a new wave of impassioned abolitionists ready to engage in the Massachusetts area! Events for the second-half of the year include the Topsfield Fair, the Break the Chains concert in New York, and a fair-trade fashion show.
