Freeing slaves is about community. It’s about strengthening community resistance in slavery hot spots so that traffickers cannot prey on vulnerable children, women and men. And it’s about building a community of supporters among those of us who live with the blessing of liberty, and then building a bridge between those who need help and those who can provide it.
That sense of connecting communities is the key to Executive Director Maurice Middleberg’s end-of-year video message to Free the Slaves supporters.
“It is our privilege to help build today’s bridges to freedom,” Maurice says, “to link those resisting slavery with their supporters is inspiring and joyful work. We enter 2015, our 15th year as an organization, confident that with your continued help, more and more people will cross into freedom.”
