Why Kari Jobe Has a Giant Red X on Her Hand Today

by | Feb 7, 2019 | Woman

Kari Jobe is among those who drew a giant red X on her hand today to raise awareness of human trafficking.

Feb. 7, 2019, is Shine a Light on Slavery Day, and the End It Movement created a universal symbol to raise awareness.

According to the End It Movement’s site, “Drawing a RED X on your hand may seem simple at first, but you’ll be amazed at the conversations it prompts with everyone from your boss to your barista; conversations that educate and inspire the people in your circles one by one. After all, action starts with awareness.”

The End It Movement “is a coalition of the leading organizations in the world in the fight for freedom. Each of our amazing coalition partners are doing the work, on the ground, every day, to bring awareness prevention, rescue, and restoration. Joined by students and Senators, Nonprofits and Fortune 500s, END IT is each of us standing for what’s right until the number of men, women, and children suffering in silence moves from 40 million, to ZERO.”

Along with Jobe, thousands of people have drawn the X and posted it to social media to raise awareness. Check it out.

I CANNOT BELIEVE ITS 2018 and there are 40 million victims of modern slavery in the world. People are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children. THIS HAPPENES IN THE US TOO. Btwn 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year. Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries. This is why I support the #enditmovement. They have people on the ground, in the streets, busting down doors, manning hotlines, prosecuting traffickers, and FREEING PEOPLE. Creative systematic change. Here in the US and all around the world. #enditmovementâŒ

I stand along side @enditmovement and @a21 to raise awareness and take action to end the trafficking of MILLIONS of people every year all over the world. It’s modern day slavery! Both these amazing orgs work to systematically end illegal trafficking by creating safe houses, working with authorities, and working to change legislation. Go to @enditmovement to get involved in the fight #enditmovement⌠#Repost @kristenanniebell ・・・ I CANNOT BELIEVE ITS 2018 and there are 40 million victims of modern slavery in the world.

Have you ever had something shake your soul? The reality that humans are being sold by other humans for sex and labor wrecks me every day. There is so much work to be done to end human trafficking, and it’s time that we own this injustice as a global community in order to end it . • • • In exactly one month, on Saturday, October 20th (10am-12pm) the city of Cleveland is joining over 600+ cities all over the world for the WALK FOR FREEDOM in Lincoln Park in Tremont! • • • My hope is that we have hundreds show up for this walk as we stand up for those who are trapped in modern day slavery. My goal is to raise $2000, because I know every dollar affects a life and equips @a21 to rescue those enslaved. If you’re interested in partnering with me, see the link in my bio to sign up to walk with my team (Breakthrough CLE) or donate! • • • Every life matters. Together, we will abolish slavery with each step. #walkforfreedom #humantrafficking #moderndayslavery #a21 #enditmovementâŒ
