On Oct. 19, tens of thousands of people wearing A21 shirts or black shirts will gather all over the world for a fundraising and awareness event called #WalkForFreedom.
Walks will take place in hundreds of cities across dozens of nations, including Baytown. Beta Lambda Kappa Sorority members met to make final plans for the fifth annual Baytown A21 Walk for Freedom taking place this Saturday at 9 a.m. at Rollingbrook Fellowship Church.
Baytown A21 Walk for Freedom participants will gather at Rollingbrook Fellowship Church to raise awareness regarding Human Trafficking of millions of men, women, and children who are still trapped in slavery today.
Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry.
• Every 30 seconds someone becomes a victim of modern-day slavery.
• The 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.
• Human trafficking occurs locally and globally.
