I had the chance to meet with Nathan Beeghley, Social Media Manager of Not For Sale, a couple of weeks ago. We had a nice breakfast in San Francisco and talked about some of the innovative things NFS is doing to combat slavery. For those who have not been to the Not For Sale website recently (www.notforsalecampaign.org), I say check it outright now, or right after finishing this blogpost. The site has evolved quite a bit over the last year and there are many new campaigns you can get involved with, such as the Free2Work, Free2Play, Free2Walk, NFS Academy and more.
We also spoke at length about the October 21-22 Global Forum on Human Trafficking taking place in Silicon Valley. This is where the movement to end slavery gets technical. There will be over 30 guest speakers, including co-founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey, and over 1,600 attendees. Today's leading abolitionists. innovators and activists will convene to discuss strategies and provide training on ways we can all participate to combat slavery. Like my Grandpa used to say, "Many hands makes light work."We all have a part we can play in ending modern slavery, the more we learn and the more who get involved, the quicker and easier it will become to end slavery.
