Human Trafficking Awareness Commitment
It’s National Human Trafficking Awareness Month (January) now and it’s been a little too long since I’ve posted on this site or done much of anything EverydayAbolistionist-y (save sign a few petitions on Change.org. I love that site! And yes, I just made up a word.) The truth is that it’s easy to get caught up in my everyday life’s circumstances and not easy to keep focused on the things that really matter to me. (Does anyone else understand that?) Well I’ve decide to kind of refresh my quest to find and fill my role in ending slavery today by clicking around on my own site! (haha) I know that sounds a little strange but it’s working for me. Actually that’s really what this site started out as — a sort of library of my own personal resources for me and my like-minded friends to use.
1o Minutes for Awareness
What can you and I do when we’ve lost momentum in your abolitionist endeavors? What can you do to get started in honor of National Human Trafficking Awareness Month? Well I suggest something simple: 10 minutes a day of clicking around on the internet reading about the modern movement to end Human Trafficking. You can do that on your smart phone while waiting at the pharmacy for your prescription (yeah– it’s cold and flu season). Or on your break at work or while your picking your kids up from school. Whenever you have a moment! And this site is the perfect place to start (not that I’m biased or anything). We’ve just made EverydayAbolitionist.com a place of the little blue links so it can be like a hub to send you out to tons of HT resources.
1 Idea to Act Out
While you are surfing the net ask yourself “What one thing can I DO to play a part in ending Human Trafficking?” It doesn’t have to be big (though it could be) but there are lots of easy things that anyone can do to help. So find yours and try it. I’ll probably start with another Destiny Rescue Jewelry party but then — who knows. 🙂
So click around for ten minutes — and pick one thing to do and move on it with me.
Here’s a few places to start:

- Human trafficking 2012 report released (newsnet5.com)
