Bishop T.D. Jakes is speaking out against the modern day slave trade that’s going on in Libya and he’s encouraging everyone else to say something too.
“Nearly a million migrants have fled into Libya and are being sold into slavery, that’s atrocious!” Jakes said. “For the price of $400, a person loses their future, dignity, their pride and sometimes their life. I’ve got friends black, white and brown who say, had they lived in slavery times they wouldn’t have made it because they would have said something. Well the bad old times are back and I wanna challenge you to say something!” he declared.
The slave trade that is going on in Libya, and even globally, is an atrocity that has to STOP. We, as a people have to partner together to put an end to this horrific disregard for human life. Here are a few ways you can help:—Use YOUR voice (Social Media, your community, etc.) to raise awareness! —Support organizations that give aid to countries from which migrants are fleeing.—Contact your local officials and become an advocate in the fight against slavery & human trafficking. We have got to say something…we CANNOT be silent. #Libya #HumanTrafficking #SlaveryInLibya
