Walk For Freedom is a global fundraising and awareness event. Rallying thousands of abolitionists, taking millions of steps, showing up in hundreds of cities all over the world, Walk For Freedom is an outward expression of our inward desire to see slavery completely abolished. October 19, single-file lines of people in black will fill their local streets, sidewalks, bridges, and tunnels with a message that can’t be ignored: slavery still exists. Together we will walk, holding signs and passing out flyers to reach the people in our city with the message of human trafficking. Telling our communities that they actually have the power to make change possible.

We believe that when we all show up locally , we will have an impact globally . In our cities, in our communities, in our world. One step at a time, we fund raise and walk to see a world without slavery.
