THE A21 CAMPAIGN
"Slavery is often talked about in numbers - millions of slaves, $150 billion industry, 1% ever rescued. Those statistics are daunting and they lose the human element. The heart of our organization is the one. The one woman, the one man, the one child trapped and exploited, unable to see another end to their story. But we see the one, and we fight for the one, and we sacrifice to restore the one… to give them freedom and independence and the chance at a better story." -A21 Campaign
The A21 Campaign is a highly successful global anti-human trafficking organization established by Christine Caine. The main goals of this organization are preventing future human trafficking through awareness programs, prosecuting perpetrators to ensure justice, and providing aftercare, protection and restoration to trafficking victims. Fighting injustice and being deeply committed to helping people through community is the passion of the A21 Campaign. To see what the A21 Campaign is working for, watch this video!

EYE HEART WORLD
Birthed locally, Eye Heart World was born in 2010 when Brian and Season Russo decided to take action against human trafficking in an innovative way. For the first awareness event they organized, Season and her mother, Denise Foster, created 30 bags, hoping to raise funds for a safe home in their community. Supporting the cause in a tangible way proved to be contagious - every single bag was sold that day. Since it’s inception, Eye Heart World has sold thousands of products, educated over 20,000 individuals and raised over $100,000 to fund the fight against Human Trafficking.
Now, based in Green Bay, WI, Eye Heart World works directly with survivors of trafficking in that area, providing essential resources and facilitating the healing process.
Their product line not only empowers people to Carry the Cause and raise awareness, but it also funds their anti-trafficking work as every product is connected to impact levels ranging from awareness efforts, to youth education, to survivor aftercare and empowerment.
All proceeds raised for Eye Heart World will go to The Rose Center - a place in Mobile, Alabama that will provide victims of trafficking a safe place to go. Clothing, food, medical attention, as well as other amenities, will be provided to the victims seeking help. This is a much needed resource in our community.
Birthed from Eye Heart World, the Rose Center is a drop-in center for young women who are severely at risk for trafficking or already being exploited. It provides services ranging from job preparation, to group counseling, individual therapy, and more. The Rose Center serves as a bridge between the life of trafficking and the long-term care she needs to live an empowered life.
