Human Trafficking/Modern Day Slavery is an issue that you might have started to hear about. But more than just a buzz, the shocking reality is that there are estimated to be 27 million in the world who have been forced into labor and sex. This is an estimated 32 billion dollar industry, and the average price of acquiring a slave is $90!
We are passionate about Freedom and Inspiration at Passion Barre and Karingah; and we believe that:
Freedom has often come, and can only come, as a result of the free becoming distressed by the captivity of the enslaved.
Individual freedom is still being threatened, and we want to raise louder voices this month with other abolitionists worldwide.
Many thanks again to all who came on Saturday, January 24, 2015 for a free community barre class during the first ever Barre-a-thon for human trafficking awareness month. Your presence made it impactful and we got to learn so much with conviction. Thank you for filling up the classes and going above and beyond the suggested class donation. Thanks to all who shared 24 cards and held 7 conversations with their communities about the Barre-a-thon as well. And thanks to all who committed to attending 24 times in these 7 weeks!
Here’s to your health, and their freedom!
