What is Walk For Freedom?

 

It’s the largest organized rally against slavery of its kind.

 
Walk For Freedom is our global response to human trafficking–an outward expression of our inward desire to see slavery abolished everywhere, forever.

It’s an awareness and fundraising event rallying tens of thousands of abolitionists, taking millions of steps in hundreds of cities all over the world.

 

IT'S LOCAL AND IT'S GLOBAL.


It’s our way of telling the world that slavery still exists and that it will never be okay–not on our watch.

Why Walk?

 

 
Because when we show up for the freedom of others, we show up for the world we want to see: a world where every single human life is valued. A world where justice, human dignity, and freedom prevail.
  

There are millions of people who are enslaved. And as long as slavery exists, we will too. We will keep showing up, keep fighting, keep walking–for the victims in our cities and around the globe–until every single human being is free.

Logistics

 
You’ll see us walking in a silent, single-file line on the  19th of October. Starting in New Zealand, reaching all the way to Alaska, there will be a walk happening every 5 minutes in a different place for 24 hours. Everyone dressed in black, holding signs and posters, seen on busy street sidewalks, and passing prominent landmarks. Most walks are between 2-3 miles / 4-5 km.

Freedom Declaration

 
“Slavery still exists in the 21st century. People like you and I bought and sold as commodities. People like you and I, in this city and in this nation. But you and I are here today. We refuse to just talk about injustice; to simply post about it. Instead, we’re here together in strength and numbers. We have the power to change the statistics. And we’re changing them right now. This is our Walk For Freedom. A walk for justice and human dignity. A walk for hope and restoration. From Australia to Ghana, India to Brazil. All over the world, we will abolish slavery with each step. Let’s never forget that we don’t just say it–we believe it. A world without slavery is possible. While human trafficking is destroying lives, we know that freedom will have the final word.

That’s why we exist. That’s why we’re here. For freedom.”
