21 Ways to get involved with the A21 Campaign (14/21): Unite and Conquer!

United we stand, divided we fall. The core values of the A21 Campaign rest upon the collaborative efforts of those in the fight against human trafficking. Together we are stronger than when we are separate.

Today’s challenge is to unite and conquer, whether that is socially as suggested in the post party with a purpose, or meeting new people online in forums or at events that combat human trafficking.

British Ministers have also been focusing on human trafficking in the run up to and follow up after the London 2012 Olympics, recognising the definite need for unity in order to tackle this vast issue:

“We cannot effectively tackle the problem in isolation.  It is a transnational crime, and it requires a transnational response. We are working internationally on prevention through education and alleviating poverty. We are strengthening our borders to catch gangs and rescue victims. We also want to see greater protection for those victims, allowing them to return home and receive the support and aftercare they need.” {Foreign Office Minister Hugo Swire}

“Our aim is to build on our collective efforts with international partners so far to continue to support victims and to identify and punish the perpetrators.” {Home Office Minister Mark Harper}

So enroll your friends and enlist your classmates in the fight for freedom! Together we can stand against the injustice of slavery – whatever you do, don’t do it alone!

Ronell x

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” {Ecclesiastes 4v9-12}
