Slavery Still Exists. We Exist to END IT.
There are more people trapped in slavery today than ever before in human history. Most of the world knows NOTHING about the most significant human rights issue of its time. END IT Movement is a collective of everyday people united by the hope that we could put an end to slavery and human trafficking in our lifetime.
The End It Movement is representative of an effort fight for freedom. Someplace Safe, along with allies across the world, are doing the work, on the ground, everyday, to bring awareness, prevention, rescue, and restoration in the area of human trafficking and modern day slavery.
Action Starts With Awareness
You can’t take a stand against something you don’t know exists. That’s why as END IT Movement, we focus our energy towards awakening the world to the fact that not only does slavery still exist, but that it’s more prevalent now than at any other time in history. It may seem like raising your voice isn’t doing enough, but as each of us comes alongside each other, we become a mighty roar calling culture’s attention to the scourge of human trafficking.
