Freedom For All is a campaign Operation Underground Railroad runs every summer to increase awareness of modern-day slavery and our fight for freedom worldwide.
It is a time that we reflect on independence and freedom; it is a time that we remember the high price our forefathers paid for our liberty. The #FreedomForAll campaign was born to remind us that, although we enjoy unparalleled freedom, over two million children in the world are trapped in sexual slavery.O.U.R. Founder Tim Ballard
It is our mission to eradicate modern-day slavery and make freedom a reality for everyone. We won’t stop until that happens.
That is why we are focusing this summer on Freedom For All. Freedom starts with YOU.
1. Support upcoming operations in the U.S.
Four states are requesting our help right now. Operations are planned.
Our team is ready to go. With your support, we will make a major impact and provide freedom for the enslaved.
Help us reach our goal of $100,000 by the end of July by donating to the cause. Your donations help expand our work, allowing us to rescue more children and support them in aftercare.
Your donations in action
A 17-year-old survivor, Luke (name changed), recently had the opportunity to go on a community outing with our Aftercare Team.
All of the other kids went swimming after dinner except for Luke. O.U.R. Aftercare Assistant, Tyler Schwab, was talking with Luke and asked him if he was having fun. Luke said, “I can honestly say this has been the best night of my life.”
Both Luke and Tyler didn’t bring swimming clothes. Seizing an opportunity for a little bit of fun, Tyler asked Luke, “If I jump in, will you jump in?” Luke agreed, but only if they went in at the same time. On the count of three, they both jumped in the pool at the same time in their jeans and day clothes.
Moments like this show how kids who have been trafficked want the chance to truly be a kid. Kids were never meant to be sold. Your donations help Luke and other children like him to finally be children.
2. Purchase a 2019 Freedom Tee
Start a conversation about O.U.R. by sporting our 2019 Freedom Tee! Spreading awareness about human trafficking is key to ending it. All proceeds from shirt sales support the cause.
3. Join a local Volunteer Area Team
Our volunteers across the country will be participating in exciting summer initiatives to spread awareness, raise funds, and get communities involved in the cause! From lemonade stands to O.U.R. documentary screenings, our volunteers use their unique talents to support O.U.R.’s mission to end human trafficking. Join us!
4. Read our internet safety guide
Once school is out for the summer, kids are more likely to spend more time on social media. Online predators are tactful and experienced in finding vulnerable children to begin grooming. Become familiar with the process of grooming so you can help your children understand how online predators may target them.
