Mindfulness | Human Trafficking & Modern Slavery

Mindfulness | Introduction to Human Trafficking

Human trafficking in recent weeks, dare I say months, has become the single non-partisan issue we as a country can rally behind.

I believe in a world where dignity is not an afterthought and where every individual believes the truth that they are irreplaceable and not disposable. Help me to reach my Dressember campaign goal of $600 to rescue & restore people victimized by Human Trafficking. It is projected that there [...]
