Take a spin on the food forest island. Dug by #advpassport last year #farm #permaculture #foodforest #tilapiamoat #natural #aquaponicsinthewild
“How do you like working here?” ❌
“It’s my life,” she replies with a small sigh as she rolls the dice. “I don’t want to be here but tonight I dance.” ❌
After an hour of playing games and broken conversation with A* I felt like we had been friends for ages. She is your typical 20-something year old woman— she loves playing volleyball, shopping with friends, and walking on the beach. She has dreams of going back to school and traveling. Her laughter is contagious, her manner is kind, and she is stunningly beautiful. ❌
But she’s not typical. She is trapped in human trafficking. ❌
My heart broke when I watched A* get up on the bar and grab the pole. Her smile faded. Her eyes lost that special sparkle. And she swayed as her boss and the men stared on. She danced seductively but her face contorted sadly. Her freedom had been torn away. ❌ •
Unfortunately, A* is not alone. There are over 40 million modern-day slaves. ❌
This is my first time participating in the END IT MOVEMENT. It used to piss me off because I didn’t think it was doing anything.
But awareness is the first step.
The next step is to raise your voice.
It’s time to RAISE YOUR VOICE to fight for the FREEDOM of those who don’t feel like they have a voice.
It is time to stand up and shout about the inhumane crimes that are happening all around the world. It is time for CHANGE.
Do it for A*. Do it for your brothers and sisters. Do it for the men, women, and children that are suffering in silence.
Raise your voice and empower those around you to do the same. ❌ •
