Words From President Obama

From: user 4.
Sent on: Tuesday, September 25, 2012 4:39 PM

Hello Friends,

 

In a press conference today, President Obama said this about human trafficking:

“It ought to concern every person, because it’s a debasement of our common humanity.  It ought to concern every community, because it tears at the social fabric ... I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking, which must be called by its true name—modern slavery.”

He continued by saying:

“Our fight against human trafficking is one of the great human rights causes of our time, and the United States will continue to lead it…”

 

Friends, our time to lead is now. Join us this Saturday for the 2012 Stop Modern Slavery Walk.

How can you help lead the fight against trafficking?

  • Volunteer for to help at the walk: Email Anna Nehring at [address removed]. Volunteers are needed from 12-4pm.
  • Recruit your friends. Traffickers have networks of people that support slavery. We need networks of communities standing for freedom and justice.
  • Register at smswalk.org.
  • Donate at smswalk.org.

 

I'll see you Saturday.

 

Best wishes,

Ashley Marchand
