Each year, 6 to 800,000 women, children and men are enslaved and trafficked across international borders. 70% are female. 50% are children. As many as 17,500 are brought into the United States against their will. According to the United Nations, 79% of slavery is for sex. 18% for forced labor, forced marriages, or forced organ donation. Approximately 200,000 American children are at risk to be forced into prostitution. The FBI & United Way have consistently ranked Atlanta as one of the top cities where PEOPLE are trafficked every year. Where is freedom? Where is hope? Where is justice? Who will hear their cries? Who will stand for them?
Stand with us, April 1st, 2009 at Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA to Rock For Justice! Many Atlanta artists, including Dove Award winner Aaron Shust will lend their voices to raise awareness and money for those enslaved in our city. All funds are being donated to Wellspring For Girls, a safe house ministry for underage girls coming out of the sex industry.
Stand for truth.
Speak up for the downtrodden.
Rock For Justice.
