So when we heard about Free-Them, one of Canada’s leading anti-human trafficking organizations, and the fact that they were about to celebrate their 5th year of their annual “Freedom Walk” we knew we had to get involved.
[free-them] is a volunteer-based initiative dedicated to raising awareness and funds to abolish human trafficking in Canada and abroad. Founded in January 2010, [free-them] is committed to partnering with business, government and law enforcement to fight human trafficking (slavery today) through awareness, education, legislation and fundraising for front line organizations. Freedom Walk, a 4 kilometre walk dedicated to raising funds and awareness for fighting human trafficking in Canada. To celebrate the milestone, [free-them] launches the [free-them] Ottawa Freedom Walk, an identical walk taking place in Canada’s capital on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at the same time as Toronto’s flagship walk.
“This year, our movement has expanded to Ottawa where an inaugural [free-them] walk is taking place alongside the Toronto walk on Saturday, September 27, 2014,” says Shae Invidiata, Founder, [free-them]. “The walks in both cities will unite survivors, law enforcement, politicians and civilians in coming together to take a stand against human trafficking.”
Approximately 1,500 people from all over Canada will be joining the walk this year, including national law enforcement, political figures, and notable names in media, film and government.
So please come join us this Saturday as we show our support to stop human trafficking, get all the details at: Free Them Walk
