END IT is a coalition of organizations around the world in the fight for freedom. Their Coalition Partners are doing the work, on the ground, everyday, to bring awareness, prevention, rescue and restoration. Each February, END IT promotes “Shine a Light on Slavery Day” to raise awareness. On that day, they ask supporters to draw a RED X on your hand, take a selfie and post it using #ENDITMOVEMENT.
But you don’t have to wait until February. Help END IT tell the world about modern slavery by telling your world. Get creative and leverage your talents and influence to help shine a light on slavery. Their website offers lots of ideas for ways you can get involved, like joining a bike race, hosting a pancake social, getting your company involved, or volunteering as a campus rep (if you’re a college student).
One simple step is downloading their resource kit, and donating your social media profile for a day or a week, to raise awareness. You can get profile graphics for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter here.
