January: National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month in the US

As I have mentioned previously, human trafficking is one of the closest causes to my heart. I have posted about it a lot, so today when I saw a post by the A21 Campaign in my facebook feed, I knew I had to share! So below is information shared by the A21 Campaign about how awareness about human trafficking is being raised in the US in particular:
Just a few weeks into 2013, the dark industry of sex trafficking is being brought to light and people are committing to change. It’s been mainstream media and unlike many passing trends, this isn’t a social justice cause; it’s human rights.
In one of the most significant efforts towards awareness, January has been declared National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month in the United States. If you haven’t read President Obama’s proclamation, read it here. And tomorrow, Friday, is a day designated to spreading awarenes
Be a voice for the voiceless by sharing why abolition in the 21st century is important to YOU! Go on Twitter or Instagram and use the #BeCause hashtag. It could be your personal declaration, photos of yourself in #BeCause gear, or you get really creative with text designs. Go to our Facebook page and write on our wall about why you are making a difference.
Are you involved #BeCause ? One moment of our time could mean a lifetime of freedom for someone!
Maybe #BeCause there are 27 million in slavery today, our generation MUST move to action.
Or maybe everything else just became a little less important #BeCause you found a way to make the world a better place.
We’ll share, retweet, repost, and highlight why YOU are involved from our own social media platforms. We’ll be doing this from Friday, January 11 – Wednesday, January 15.
This year we are going to make significant strides towards truly abolishing modern slavery. Kick it off by sharing why you’re taking a stand!
Thank you for support for this amazing cause!

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.” {Isaiah 40v28-29}
