Bring Justice - Become an Abolitionist

This week I have been preparing a 5-7 minute Toastmasters Speech on the topic of Human Trafficking. The information blows my mind. If you will take a few minutes to browse the links below, you too may become an abolitionist. 

Twenty-seven million people around the world are enslaved - many are children - many are right here in the USA. It does affect you whether you learn about it or ignore it. Together we can abolish slavery.
