Today is Shine a Light on Slavery Day (part of the End It Movement), so the dress is back! It's the 369th time I've worn it. The red X on my hand? It's just another way to raise awareness. When someone asks me about it, I can tell them about the 27 million people in slavery today.
Here's what we're doing about it:
1. Raise your voice. Tell your friends. Draw a red X on your hand, and when people ask you why it’s there, tell them about the 27 million people who are still in slavery. Talk about it on social media. Use the #enditmovement hashtag. Your voice matters. (more ideas)
2. Watch (and share) this video.
3. Give. There are seven coalition partners. In honor of the 27 million who are in slavery, and to see them freed, let’s give $27 to each of them. That’s just $189. Here’s how this works: give to one of the seven organizations. Give what you can. If you can do $27, great. If you can do $5, do that. Then shoot me an email (bethanywinz [at] gmail [dot] com) or leave a comment and let me know what you gave. This post will be updated throughout the day with progress as we raise our voices and take action against slavery.
