The Freeze Project

This Saturday, April 17, cities around the globe will be taking part in The Freeze Project. It is a day to bring awareness to the reality of the modern-day slavery known as human trafficking. You can check the site to what cities near you might be participating.

Here's the concept for what people will actually be doing on April 17 (from the site):
  • Gather groups of people (preferably 50+) to freeze on cue in or near a busy landmark/environment for 5 minutes to draw the attention of the bystanders.
  • After the 5 minutes are done, people un-freeze and pass out 1 flyer with links to organizations working to end slavery.
  • That’s it!
You can watch a couple of past events here and here.

If you're in Atlanta, we'll be meeting at Piedmont Park around 10am. We'll be there during the annual Dogwood Festival that attracts tens of thousands of people every year. Check out the Facebook page for more specific info.

And finally, here's a video that helps explain more about The Freeze Project event happening in Atlanta:
