Dear American, Happy Independence Day. Love, Your Slave

Happy Independence Day!

As we celebrate our freedom, let us work to extend that freedom to the slaves of today.  

As you watch this video and listen to a voice from slavery of the past, think about what the slaves of today might say to us as we celebrate Independence Day while wearing the clothing they make, eating the food they harvest, and viewing on the internet the sexual abuse they suffer.

I'm thirty (yes I admit it). I'm a single mom working in retail and wanting to find my role in the fight to end modern-day slavery. I'm hopeful that I will.
