    Hi friends,

    Recently, I found out that there are millions of slaves in the world today and only 1% of victims are ever rescued. I realized that I am not okay with that so I am participating in the 2017 Walk For Freedom. The statistics are daunting and heavy, but change is possible. Every number represents a human life, and every rescue brings us closer to being the last generation sold.

    A21 exists to end slavery and I am joining them on October 14th to Walk For Freedom. I am inviting you to help me fundraise https://www.a21.org/fundraising/izak-blanchette/walk-for-freedom-2017 as I raise awareness and funds for A21 Walk For Freedom. My goal is to raise $500 because I know every dollar affects a life. All proceeds go to the work that A21 is doing around the world, visit A21

    Regardless if you can donate or not please pray that the fundraiser exceeds expectation and for the effectiveness of the A21 organisation, especially their hands on staff

    Every life matters.
    Together, we will abolish slavery with each step.

    For Freedom,
    Izak Blanchette

    As an activist and public speaker in sex trafficking, my question to you would be: What are you doing for those rescued afterward? Rescuing these individuals means little to nothing, 90%+ of them go back to the career of trafficking unless they have sustainable reliability after they are pulled from that horrible lifestyle they are likely to return.

    As a survivor of this, I do not speak hypothetically.

    I will be speaking with an associate at Bethel University for 2 hours next summer on the issue of sex trafficking and how it relates to the church and their responsibility, we find that fundraising and such to organizations that don't know what they are doing are more detrimental than positive.

    What do you think of that?
