So this is the second video in my year-long video series exploration into human trafficking, or modern-day slavery. I learned about this atrocity a few years ago and a burden was really placed on my heart to fight against it. I have been doing so through supporting various anti-human trafficking non-profits (including Not For Sale, Call + Response, Stop Child Trafficking Now, Restore NYC & Nomi Network) and my own music (my original: Taking A Stand), but still felt this unquenchable thirst to do more. This video series was birthed from that thirst and aims to educate those who know very little about or have never even heard of human trafficking or modern-day slavery.
This week’s episode focuses on our electronics and how the minerals comprising these electronics are mined by slaves of armed forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo—funding their 10+ year long civil war and the 5+ million death toll. I’m not trying to guilt, shame, or point fingers at anyone, but just enlighten the general public so that we can make informed decisions, knowing that our choices have an impact.
