My Freedom Day
March 2020: Students Leading the Charge in Raising Awareness About Modern-day Slavery

A21 is partnering with the CNN Freedom Project for #MyFreedomDay on March 11, 2020. #MyFreedomDay is a campaign that encourages students to raise awareness for modern day slavery.

This day challenges us all to take a step back and recognize the freedoms we often take for granted--the freedoms that those trafficked don’t have--and to ask ourselves, “What does Freedom mean to you?

Because of the students that have joined this cry, people from all over the globe have begun participating in #MyFreedomDay. Athletes, musicians, actors and actresses, and political figures have all joined this movement to fight human trafficking and celebrate freedom.
A21 will be organizing events with students and sharing our answers to the question, “What does Freedom mean to you?” on social media.

The Power of Prevention

January 2020: Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Oleg* is a teenager from Ukraine. He was like many other kids his age–recently graduated and ready to explore the world in front of him. When he and 6 of his friends were offered jobs abroad, they accepted with the hope of pursuing a promising opportunity. Once they arrived, their new employer told them to hand over their passports and documentation.

But Oleg* and his friends remembered what an A21 presenter had taught them–to never give their passports away. Immediately, Oleg* became suspicious of his employer and he and his friends got away. They later found out it was a dangerous situation they had avoided. 

This is the power of prevention. This is the result of what happens when one person decides to equip their community with knowledge and resources on human trafficking.

You're Invited to make your community aware & give a gift in honor of Human Trafficking Awareness Month.

It's A Penalty

FEBRUARY 2020: Human trafficking Awarness at the SUPERBOWL
It's A Penalty Posters in Hands: Raising Human Trafficking Awareness at the Superbowl


A21 is the founding partner of It’s A Penalty, a campaign that harnesses the power of sports to protect vulnerable children from exploitation and abuse around the world.

At the official kick-off event in Miami, our team trained local professionals in the hotel and restaurant industry, on how to spot and report suspected cases of human trafficking.

This half-day summit included a panel with leading experts to join forces in the fight against human trafficking ahead of Super Bowl LIV in Miami.

Then, our team trained 500 volunteers in Miami on January 25 who went to over 400 hotels to distribute campaign materials that include the signs of human trafficking, chapstick and other items with hotline numbers, and the NCMEC missing children’s list.

A21 will also be at the SuperBowl breakfast where every attendee will be made aware of human trafficking. Several athletes including Usain Bolt, David Luiz, Aaron Rodgers, Andy Dalton, Liam Malone, Ryan Tennehill, Nick Foles, and many others are using their voices to speak up and help prevent the exploitation of children.

Will you join them by lending your voice?
