“Time’s Up” reached an all-time high in January 2018 in the US, spiking by 220%. See more #IWD2018 trends at g.co/womensday Happy #iwd2018 !! What a time to be alive! Feeling very empowered by all the women (and men) who are using their voices and tenacious spirits to work towards equality. I’m celebrating my mama today and the women who inspire me! 💥🦄 And check out equalitynow.org to take action and learn what you can do to help! @timesupnow. @equalitynoworg
I stand along side @enditmovement and @a21 to raise awareness and take action to end the trafficking of MILLIONS of people every year all over the world. It’s modern day slavery! Both these amazing orgs work to systematically end illegal trafficking by creating safe houses, working with authorities, and working to change legislation. Go to @enditmovement to get involved in the fight #enditmovement❌ #Repost @kristenanniebell ・・・ I CANNOT BELIEVE ITS 2018 and there are 40 million victims of modern slavery in the world. People are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children. THIS HAPPENES IN THE US TOO. Btwn 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year. Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries. This is why I support the #enditmovement. They have people on the ground, in the streets, busting down doors, manning hotlines, prosecuting traffickers, and FREEING PEOPLE. Creative systematic change. Here in the US and all around the world.

@everytown When my phone buzzed with the news alerts about YET another school shooting, my heart sunk for the innocent lives,the families, the loved ones, and for our country. And then, I got really angry. It doesn’t have to be like this. Infuriating, preposterous, and sickening. My cab driver agreed. He shared my outrage- he’s from Sierra Leone and commented about America’s “gun problem”. He told me that his son goes to school not far away and just the other day there was a shooting, no one was hurt, but he was terrified for his son. This doesn’t doesn’t have to be a reality- we can do something about it. This gun violence isn’t normal and it does not need to be a contested issue. It should be damn hard to get a gun- just like it should be a lot harder to get prescription medication that’s led to an insane opioid crisis... but don’t get me started (thinking back to the #sotu2018 when Trump openly praised the FDA for all the new drugs they’re pushing and loosening drug restrictions THEN not 10 minutes later condemned the #opiodcrisis and blamed immigrants when really it’s #bigpharma polluting and killing American citizens!) I digress... We can do something and we need to hold our lawmakers accountable and get involved ourselves. I’m all for hunting- I like 🥩- but not hunting people- or making it easy for mentally unstable people to have access to a gun. This isn’t about freedom, it’s about COMMON SENSE. Go to the link in my bio or @everytown to see how you can get our lawmakers to listen. This is a participatory democracy- but it requires that WE THE PEOPLE PARTICIPATE. I plan to NOT JUST POST - but pray, participate, and take some action. #ParklandShooting ALSO- I saw @dekalbelementary at @ifcfilms yesterday- a remarkable #oscarnominated short. If you are on the fence about gun control laws in general or are thinking about our health care system- or just want to be moved and see some HUMANITY. Watch this film. It brings the issue into sharp focus.

TODAY on #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay, @A21 is launching our global awareness campaign #CanYouSeeMe in the USA. This film was produced in consultation with the U.S. Department of Justice and @missingkids. ⠀ There is a growing concern of child sexual exploitation in U.S. schools. Minors are often recruited through social media, a friend, or a pimp posing as a boyfriend. Modern-day #slavery still exists. And if you suspect it, report it. ⠀ ⠀ Spread the word. Raise awareness for #humantrafficking. Share this video. Learn more: CanYouSeeMe.net
