Beta Lambda Kappa Sorority members met to prepare and plan for the fifth annual Baytown A21 Walk for Freedom.    

Tens of thousands of people will gather all over the world for this Walk to raise awareness of Human Trafficking and the millions of men, women, and children who are still trapped in slavery today.

Walk for Freedom is distinctly recognized by its participants who will be wearing black shirts and walking in single file lines all over the world on Saturday, October 19, 2019 to abolish slavery with each step.

Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry. Every 30 seconds someone becomes a victim of modern-day slavery. Average age of a trafficking victim is 12 years old.

There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history.

Registration for the Walk is free. 

Baytown’s Walk will be at Rollingbrook Fellowship Church on Oct. 19 at 9 a.m. Register at www/A21.org/baytown.
