Walk for Freedom to raise awareness in Sullivan
On October 14, a fundraising and awareness event called #WalkForFreedom will take place in hundreds
of cities across 50 nations.
The purpose of the walk, operated by a global anti-human trafficking organization called A21, is to raise
awareness about the millions of men, women and children who are still trapped in slavery today.
By fundraising and rallying thousands of people around the cause, the belief is that this event will be the
catalyst for the rescue and restoration of human beings who are being exploited as commodities.
Walk For Freedom is distinctly recognized by its participants who are in single-file lines, wearing black
shirts and yellow bandanas across their mouths. You’ll see these lines in places all over the world–from
in front of the Eiffel Tower in France, to along the Hollywood Walk of Fame in America.
“We are utterly convinced that slavery can be eradicated in our lifetime. Walk For Freedom is definitely
one of the most impacting things that we do at A21. It is a tangible, practical, and doable thing for every
single person. All of us can put our feet on the pavement and use our steps to make a difference,” says
Christine Caine, A21’s Founder.
