You Can Help Stop Trafficking~

Just in from International Justice Network (IJN):

Today is the National Call-in Day to Pass the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act!  Thank you to those of you who have already committed to calling your senators. Today, thousands of abolitionists around the country will raise a groundswell of support for this life-saving legislation to fight trafficking at home and abroad.

Calling will take about 2 minutes per office – just visit IJM’s National
Call-In Day webpage
to find the contact information for your senators, along
with a sample script to help you with your calls.

To make sure the message is heard loud and clear, we want to generate 3,000 calls, coming from all 50 states, so we need your help! When you make and log your
calls, I hope you’ll invite your friends to do the same. The more voices we have, the more powerful this day of action will be!

Thank you for raising your voice on behalf of those in slavery.

Okay, friends, let’s help make a difference!

About kaystrom

Kay Marshall Strom, who am I? Well, I’m a traveler, a railer against social injustice, a passionate citizen of the world. I’m a follower of Jesus Christ. I’m a 21st century abolitionist who speaks out against slavery of all kinds. I am a beach walker and a gardener and the off-key singer of songs. I’m a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend. Most people, though, know me as a writer and a speaker. So here is a bit more about that part of my life: Of my 43 published books, seventeen have been translated into foreign languages, and two have been optioned for movies. My writing credits include magazine articles, books for children, short stories, television scripts and two prize-winning screenplays. I love to write, and speak, about topics close to my heart. I speak at seminars, retreats, writer’s conferences, and special events throughout the country. And because I enjoy travel, I even speak on cruise ships. Because I don’t see how a writer can really reflect another people and land without spending time there, I’ve been trekking through India, China, Indonesia, Cambodia, Nepal, Sudan, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, and Egypt, Japan and South Korea, tape recorder and camera in hand, to gather stories from the world-wide family of God. Thanks to my “virtual friendship” with John Newton, 17th century slave ship captain turned preacher, I traveled through Ireland. In West Africa I toured an old slave fortress off the coast and saw a tiny set of baby manacles bolted to the wall. I was struck dumb. From that horror came a story question, and from that question, my foray into fiction: The Grace in Africa trilogy. Come join me as I travel and rail against injustice. Maybe you will choose to be a 21st century abolitionist too.

      Hi Marilyn~
      I don’t know whether it is or not. It would sure be worth a try.

      Thanks for the good word about the website. Mike Reynolds (Global Studio Social Marketing Agency) did it. If you or anyone else is interested in talking with him, let me know.
