As the Thanksgiving holiday draws near, I would like to share a very special video message from the Free the Slaves staffers across the globe whose work you support. They risk their safety every day to help vulnerable and exploited communities break free from the inhumanity and brutality of slavery.
They’d like to say – in their own languages – how grateful they are for the donors who make freedom possible.
As I have traveled the world with our front-line teams, I have seen the results of our programs with my own eyes — and in the eyes of slavery survivors who have reclaimed their future and dignity. Although slavery itself is devastating, ending it is truly joyous work. I have been fortunate to see firsthand the impact that freedom brings to women, children, men and entire communities.
I invite you to celebrate that freedom with us this Thanksgiving. You are the key that opens the lock. From the countless communities you have helped bring to freedom, and all of us at Free the Slaves, thank you.
