There is a common myth about the nature of anti-slavery work: that it’s terribly depressing. Actually, fighting slavery is the most joyful experience that you can imagine.
Nothing compares to the joy I’ve seen on the faces of families freed from generations of debt bondage slavery in Asia, or the smiling faces of children I’ve met who have been rescued from fishing slavery in Africa.
I would like to share with you our newest video, which features these “Faces of Freedom.” Without contributions from supporters like you, these faces would be telling a very different story.
In Faces of Freedom, you will see the many things that freedom brings: exultation, triumph, hope, optimism and relief. You will see the faces of slavery survivors, whose strength knows no bounds, as well as the faces of people who’ve avoided enslavement thanks to the frontline work of Free the Slaves. They will pass this freedom on to future generations.
During this holiday season, I hope you will consider giving the gift of freedom, so even more people will know the happiness that freedom brings.
We at Free the Slaves wish you happy holidays, and thank you for helping us spread joy in the world.
