On April 2-3, 2010, synagogues around the world will be praying for those held captive in honor of the first ever Freedom Shabbat. Please join in this worldwide day of reflection by preaching about freedom, singing songs of redemption and prayerfully considering taking an offering to support the global projects of the Not For Sale Campaign. From India to Australia, Myanmar to San Francisco, Costa Rica to New York, synagogues around the globe will collectively ring the Freedom bell to declare that they are Not For Sale, you are Not For Sale and no one should be For Sale.
We live in a deeply interconnected world where the crime of modern-day slavery occurs both in plain sight and virtually. Combating slavery requires new tactics. In other words, we cannot contest Criminality 2.0 by running Movement 1.0. Only by rethinking the idea of ‘movement’ through the scope of Smart Activism and Open-Source Activism and equipping ourselves can a movement with lasting effect take hold, creating holistic change in our world where slavery currently is all too commonplace.
At Global Advocacy Days | Washington DC on March 1st & 2nd, nearly 200 advocates hit the Hill to support needed legislation to combat modern-day slavery. The event was a resounding success!
But the Advocacy doesn’t stop there. We need the ongoing help of Americans in order to secure legislative funding to combat human trafficking!
Join us by signing the petition to Labor & Health and Human Services Appropriators.
