The SOLD Project is teaming up with The FREEZE Project and other anti-trafficking organizations to create awareness about human trafficking in our communities. Here’s a note from Charles Lee, one of the founders of The FREEZE Project, on how to get your city involved:

—-

On April 17th, we are hosting a Global Freeze Project Day and we would love for you to participate!

Here’s how you can partner with us:

  • Visit our website (www.thefreezeproject.com) regularly for the most up-to-date information about the Global Freeze.
  • Consider organizing one of our Freezes that day. If interested, simply email us at charles [at] just4one.org for instructions.
  • Consider participating at one of our growing list Freeze locations for April 17th (see below).
  • Join us at our Facebook Fanpage: www.facebook.com/thefreezeproject
  • Follow us on Twitter: www.twitter.com/myfreezeproject
  • Support one of our partner organizations for this event by purchasing a limited edition Freeze Project T-Shirt (our first one ever!). Most of the proceeds from these sales will go to some great abolition organizations including One Voice to End Slavery (JustOne), Stop the Traffik, The Sold Project, and a few more (to be confirmed). Details on these shirts will be available late February.
  • Host a parallel event or concert in partnership with an organization that seeks to end slavery. We have a great network of resources (e.g., films, literature, etc.) to supplement your event. If interested, email us at charles [at] just4one.org for instructions.
  • Please help us get the word out about this day via your social networks, blogs, emails, and word of mouth.

Our hope is that this experience, whether as a participant or viewer, would spur us on to (1) learn more about the reality of slavery, (2) connect with organizations that are effective in combatting slavery, and (3) mobilize us to consider altering our life-rhythms/practices to end slavery in our lifetime.
