DC Event: Stop Modern Slavery Walk on the National Mall

apollina baker

 

Hi everyone!  It's time for the third annual Stop Modern Slavery Walk on the National Mall.  On Saturday, October 22, 2011 thousands of activists from around the D.C. metro area will join together make an impact on the fight against modern-day slavery!  The event will include a 5K walk, anti-trafficking resource fair, luminary speakers, and incredible musical performances. Last year's walk was awesome, we had over 2,000 walkers, raised over $100,000, and brought together over 30 anti-trafficking organizations in the DC area.  This year our fight continues... Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and the second largest and fastest growing criminal industry in the world, with an estimated 27 million slaves worldwide today.  We walk on the National Mall to celebrate human rights, raise public awareness about contemporary forms of slavery and raise funds for non-profits working to end these practices.  If you're in the area, won't you come out and walk with us?  If you do come, I'll be over at the media table, stop by and say hi!
