Local Walk. Global Impact.

Walk For Freedom

Walk For Freedom is our global awareness event, rallying tens of thousands of people, taking millions of steps, in hundreds of cities all over the world. We walk to disrupt the existence of slavery, shaking its very foundation with each step. It’s an outward expression of A21’s inward desire to see slavery abolished everywhere—in our cities, in our communities, and in our world. One step at a time and one dollar at a time, we walk to see a world without slavery.

In 2019, we showed up in 500 locations across 50 countries, reaching 80 million people through social media.
Each step mattered. Each step made a difference.

Because as long as slavery still exists, we will keep showing up.

.

For the child sold into sex slavery in Thailand needing intervention.
For the man forced to work against his will in the fields of Ukraine.
For the woman deceived into the sex trade in Bulgaria.
For the teenage girl preyed upon and deceived by an older man.
For the millions who are still enslaved.

.

.

  

When we show up for the freedom of others, we
show up for the world we want to see. A world where
human life is valued above a price. A world where children
can live without vulnerability or slavery.
A world where every single person is free.

Host a Walk

.


Hosts are the catalysts. The ones who set the foundation for local action and lead the charge for making a global impact. You are the mobilizers, the leaders, the difference-makers—the world-changers that inspire others to stand for what is right and build a legacy of freedom for the generations to come.

The reason we were in 500 locations, across 50 countries, taking millions of steps in 2019.

But it’s only the start. This year, we need you.

YOU can bring Walk For Freedom to your city.

Because when you do, the message of freedom is spread all over the world. But it starts with a decision to show up in your city, to rally your community, and to use your freedom to fight for the freedom of others.

"We are convinced that if we do this together, if we keep showing up, if we continue to be tenacious, if we continue to have grit, if we continue to not bow down to discouragement, but we turn up with strength, and numbers, and with courage, and with faith, then we can see slavery eradicated in our lifetime.”

— Christine Caine, A21 Co-Founder
