‘Freedom Walks’ & Coalition Building to Break the Chains of Modern Slavery:
Human Trafficking Sex Trade Mass Incarceration & Children in Poverty
On April 22, 2016, the World Peace Walkers and Partners in The Red Flame for Freedom movement take to the streets in communities throughout the United States to raise awareness about the proliferation of modern day slavery experienced through sex trafficking, human trafficking, mass incarceration, and children in poverty. Modern day slavery in not simply a foreign issue, it is also an American issue and may be closer than you think.
