We received terrific news today from our friends at the End It Movement, as they wrap up their campaign.
From January 1 through April 9, young activists mobilized across the country to shine a light on modern-day slavery. They raised awareness on a large scale and helped generate significant resources to support the anti-slavery movement. The results achieved in only a few months are remarkable.
The End It campaign is a wonderful example of solidarity and partnership across the anti-slavery movement. Working together, we can all do more to eradicate slavery.
The campaign is also a testament to faith – faith that people of good will can and will join hands to protect and liberate the most vulnerable.
Once again, I am reminded that though the problem of slavery is shocking, the work of freedom is joyous. The building of a global coalition against slavery – of which the End It campaign is symbol – is heartening and inspiring.
What the campaign organizers have accomplished – and all those who volunteered and donated – is truly remarkable.
