#ENDITMOVEMENT — Red ‘X’s to raise awareness about modern slavery


enditRed “X”s are everywhere today.

While it is not a topic much discussed in America, the last Thursday in February has been designated “Red X” Day to raise awareness  that 27 million people are being held in slavery around the world.
Human trafficking, bonded labor and forced labor are all part of a “hidden” population of slaves around the world. The CNN Freedom Project defines slavery as “occurring when one person completely controls another person, using violence or the threat of violence to maintain that control, exploits them economically, pays them nothing and they cannot walk away.”
