A21 Walk For Freedom

The #WalkForFreedom is a collective effort to heighten awareness of modern-day slavery and raise funds to take us one step closer to ending human trafficking in our lifetime. The Walk For Freedom made its way around the world on October 17, shedding light on the 27 million men, women and children who are still in bondage. When we join forces in one single day, we not only catch the attention of our cities, but we combine our efforts to have a global impact.

The 3rd annual event will take place on October 15, 2016. Mark you calendar.

For more information or to find a walk near you, visit the A21 website.
