What is Walk For Freedom?

Walk For Freedom - Caine Family
Walk For Freedom Line

.

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.

Walk For Freedom Host

.

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.

They’re the reason we’ve been in hundreds of cities raising awareness all over the world.

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

YOU can bring Walk For Freedom to your city.

When we walk, the message of freedom is spread all over the world, lives are rescued, and freedom is multiplied. 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 person is free.

It starts with a decision to lead 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.”
