Bridge to Freedom Foundation selected 

as a Beneficiary Partner for the 

2012 DC Stop Modern Slavery Walk!

Bridge to Freedom Foundation is proud to announce we have been selected as an official Partner for the 2012 DC Stop Modern Slavery Walk on September 29th 2012. 

This 4th annual event, which has become the largest anti-human trafficking event in Washington DC, includes a 5K walk, anti-trafficking resource fair, luminary speakers, and incredible musical performances.

For more information and to join our team go to: www.walk.stopmodernslavery.org

Today, there are an estimated 27 million slaves around the world, including within our DC Area communities. This new form of modern slavery, also known as human trafficking, has become the fastest growing and second largest criminal industry in the world. Its perpetrators... use powerful methods of force, fraud and coercion to exploit men, women and children through labor and sex trafficking operations.

Bridge to Freedom Foundation's mission is to ensure that all survivors of modern day slavery are able to build the skills and resources needed to escape the cycle of modern slavery and abuse while attaining and achieve lives they choose.

Register now! and help BTFF and our other official walk partners make history! This is a great opportunity for you to get your friends and family involved in the fight against modern slavery, by encouraging them to walk, donate or fundraise for our team! If you are unable to attend the walk, you can still show your support by making a donation to our team or start a fundraising only page.

As BTFF is an official partner 85% of your donations go directly to BTFF, which will be used for our Personal Development Program to enable survivors to lead thriving lives which they choose.

Thank you for your support!
