Breaking the Links: Youth Movement Against Slavery


 Not My Life has partnered with Breaking the Links, a new youth-focused, action-based awareness campaign to raise young people's awareness of modern-day slavery.

The campaign, which includes 4 steps to joining the modern-day abolitionist movement, will be introduced in 9 cities across the United States this summer by anti-human trafficking expert Matt Friedman and his two teenage sons, Brandon and Damien.

Emphasis is on youth attendance, but ALL are welcome to attend these events which are free and open to the public.
