We’re really close to our goal, with just a few days left to our special campaign. FTS supporters have been answering the call donate the book Slavery to California schools and libraries. You can put us over the top on our Freedom Education Project on Indie GoGo. All donations, big or small, get us closer to the goal.
Now that’s a better way to help educate kids than buying a lottery ticket!
Most kids learn that slavery ended with Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. That’s not entirely accurate. Lincoln helped make slavery illegal. But that hasn’t prevented slavery from still existing.
There are 27 million slaves in the world today – more than any other time in history. Thousands are here in theU.S.Just like inLincoln’s time, slaves are forced to work without pay under threat of violence, and they’re unable to walk away.
Join the pilot phase of our Freedom Education Project on IndieGoGo. Our goal is to donate 27 books about modern slavery to schools and libraries inCalifornia. The books feature the luminous photography of Lisa Kristine, who has traveled to the frontlines to capture Free the Slaves field projects around the world.
See photos from the book in a stunning video at the Freedom Education project webpage.
All proceeds help Free the Slaves fight slavery worldwide.
