What we’ve heard:
- There are nearly 30million people are held as modern-day slaves.
- 1 in 5 women will be a victim of rape or attempted rape in her lifetime.
- There are nearly 2 million children are being exploited in the commercial sex trade.
We’ve had a few guest blogs that have touched on ethical fashion and deciding to support those in need but the subject of justice is huge and we’ve barely scratched the surface. The more I find out about what’s happening in my community and around the world, the more I’m stirred, saddened but certain that there’s more we can do together.
So here’s a question for you…
What issues in your community are you passionate about?
Well, The Girls’ Brigade England and Wales would love to hear from you. They’ve created the ‘be the change’ survey which invites you to raise your voice and speak out about the things that you’re passionate about.
You can take the short survey here AND you could even be the winner of a brand new ipod – woop woop!
