Loose Change to Loosen Chains is a student led effort to raise awareness and funds to end modern day slavery. I founded this campaign when I was 12 years old with the goal of raising up a new generation of abolitionists who would fight to free the 27 million people in slavery today. I believe our generation can end the sale of humans once and for all. The problem today is many times greater than it was 200 years ago when most people thought slavery ended.Today, children are sometimes sold by their parents when they face desperate situations or are deeply impoverished. Women and girls are sometimes tricked thinking they will get a good job and find they have been trafficked into the sex trade where they'll serve as slaves. Sometimes entire families are in slavery together in rock quarries, brick kilns and on plantations. They are threatened, beaten, starved and abused -- and they are owned by someone else. In a "civilized" world, this must stop!LC2LC is intended to be exported -- for students to take up the effort, expand upon it and implement it in their own communities without the active involvement of adults. I have created all of the tools for schools, community groups and churches to launche their own LC2LC effort.
