Recently, CNN released footage of Black Africans being sold into slavery in Libya, many of whom are refugees, escaping conflict and hardships in their home countries. People’s lives are being sold away for as little as $400 dollars a piece. This is 2017. We, as free people, need to act on their behalf and put an end to this atrocity. This is why I am urging you to sign this petition calling the United States government to put pressure on Libya to put an end to the slave trade. As a nation that stands for freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, it should be in our country’s interest to take action against slavery in any form; and given our international presence and economic strength we have the power to make a positive impact. But it all begins with you as a US citizen. Please sign and share this petition to put this on the government agenda.
