#Walk for Freedom

  • Human trafficking is slavery. It’s the illegal trade of human beings; it’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labour. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century. Slavery is more stoppable than ever, and that’s why we’re here, rallying around the world and doing the work together. Please join the crowed as we shine a spot light on all the victims of Modern Day Slavery and register for our Local Walk for Freedom East London at the following places:Total Sports Hemingways Mall, Total Sports Vincent Park Mall, Body Classique Fitness Center, Quigney and Highway Community Church, Gonubie.
