January was National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, culminating in the annual observation of National Freedom Day on February 1st. That is the day in 1865 when President Lincoln signed the 13th Amendment outlawing
slavery in the United States.
Knowing slavery still exists today, what does freedom mean in the context of human trafficking? Sex trafficking? Pornography? What relevance does Nelson Mandela’s quote have for anti-trafficking advocates?
For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
