O.U.R. and Adobe bring you Free At Last, an annual fundraising and service event in recognition of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
On January 15th, we honor Martin Luther King Jr. You might be familiar with his “I Have A Dream” speech given during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. This speech was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement. King described his dreams of freedom, declaring, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” We still live in a time where slavery exists, more so than ever before. With an estimated 2 million child sex slaves worldwide, Operation Underground Railroad is committed to bringing FREEDOM to those ENSLAVED – especially the children in the sex trade. Let us celebrate the freedom of the 900+ individuals together, we have rescued. Let us continue our work to free every enslaved child, so each one of them has the opportunity to exclaim “Free at Last! Free at Last! Thank God all mighty I’m Free at Last! This year for our annual Free At Last event, we are partnering with Adobe employees and putting rescue kits together….and WE NEED YOUR HELP!
