About the Short Film- Missing Persons

10Year_04.jpgFrom a missing children poster to a global anti-human trafficking organization.
This is our story.
Since the beginning, our decade-long story has been written by staff, volunteers,
and abolitionists who have taken action despite the statistics and challenges in
front of them. Why? Because every life is worth fighting for.
Have people ever asked you what human trafficking is? Why you support A21?
What they can do to make a difference? The answer to these questions are in our
10-year short film.
From interviews with our team on the ground to survivor stories, behind the
scenes moments to never before seen footage, you will walk away knowing more
about A21 and slavery than you ever have.
What’s in the short film?
• Vision for the future
• Stories that we’ve never told
• Special announcements
• Our journey from past to present
• A clear picture of our work
• Invitation to Sponsor Freedom

For Freedom,
Team A21

Up and Running!

The A21 Atlanta A-Team Launch was a success! We had great conversation and came up with some next steps to bring awareness to our city. A21 turned 10 years old this year. And guess what? They made a short film about the journey. This is the story—of people coming alongside, traffickers being prosecuted, and survivors finding freedom and restoration.

A21 Atlanta A-Team Launch!

The Atlanta A-Team is launching and you should be a part of it! Right here in the city, we are joining together to talk, plan, and activate as new abolitionist against modern-day slavery, human trafficking. I will be leading and be keeping you updated on opportunities to jump in, statistics, our events, and fundraising progress. Here is A21’s vision for our action:

 

A-Teams is you. It is us.
We are a global community of abolitionists determined to leave our mark on history. From coffee shops to campuses, places of work to places of worship, A-Teams are wherever you are; bringing their time, talent, and influence to create real change. A-Teams are an extension of A21 and the fuel behind the mission–going to unreached places with the message of freedom. We believe that with grit, tenacity, and dedication, we can abolish slavery everywhere, forever.

WE ARE CALLING YOU TO ACTION; TO TAKE YOUR PLACE IN HISTORY ALONGSIDE US, AND THOUSANDS OF OTHERS, TO ABOLISH SLAVERY.
What do A-Teams do?
Our A-team members are fundraising, educating others about human trafficking, participating in Walk For Freedom, putting together local initiatives, and spreading awareness through A21’s campaigns. There are millions of slaves in the world, but together we have the power to change the statistics.

 

OUR A-TEAM MEMBERS FUNDRAISE, EDUCATE OTHERS ABOUT HUMAN TRAFFICKING, PARTICIPATE IN WALK FOR FREEDOM, PUT TOGETHER LOCAL INITIATIVES AND SPREAD AWARENESS THROUGH A21 CAMPAIGNS.
