Be inspired, informed, + ignited |

Human Trafficking Storytellers

With you, we are igniting a global movement of purpose, connection, and dignity. Here’s the thing: when we take in someone else’s story, it has a way of igniting and awakening something in us. We come to life, see ourselves and the world with new eyes, and feel a step closer to taking that courageous leap of our own.  Below is a list of those we love and trust who are deeply committed to serve and fight for those who have been impacted by human trafficking…plus, some fun invitations to YOU to be ignited with inspiration.

Inspiration

What if
Just for a moment
We stop
And allow ourselves to believe
That we are perfect
Not just enough
For that suggests a limitation in itself, Perfect
Unimaginably dazzling
Clothed in potential and possibility Howling with joyous abandonment For the richness of the landscape That frames our life
Dancing every step
Whether winds are quiet or ferocious Days turbulent or still
What if
Just for a moment
We choose
To say
YES | Delta Donohue

 

Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it | Martha Postlewaite

 

Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world | Desmond Tutu

 

Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, it sends out a tiny ripple of hope | Robert F. Kennedy
