Why Do You Want to End Slavery?

Why are you passionate about ending human trafficking?  

I watched Tim’s video about his answer to that question and it got me thinking about what I would say.  I think I’m passionate about ending human trafficking because its such a huge evil today that was going on without me ever being aware of it.  When I found out about the reality of 27 million slaves in the world today, I just knew that this knowledge called me to action.  I just want to fill my role in this endeavor to eradicate slavery.  I am encouraged and enabled by the many people and organizations who are already working to that end.

 Meet Tim

Tim (Nashotah, WI) helps lead IJM’s advocacy work in the state of Wisconsin. Hear Tim’s story about how he got involved in fighting human trafficking.

“I’m passionate about trafficking because in my lifetime I was sort of the bully magnet. I was the one that people picked on, and even people in authority at that time didn’t back me up…so I knew what it was like personally to be affected by people taking advantage of me. The human trafficking is really the same thing on a different scale. It fits right in to who I am as a person.”
