Time & Location

About the Event
On October 16, 2021, tens of thousands of people will gather all over the world for Beyond Trafficking's Colaboration with A21's 3rd annual fundraising and awareness event, Walk For Freedom. Walks will take place in over 450 cities across 50 countries raising awareness for the millions enslaved across the globe.
Walk For Freedom is operated by a global anti-human trafficking organization, A21. The event is a global
response to human trafficking—reaching millions with the important message: that slavery still exists. By
fundraising and rallying thousands of people around the cause, the hope is that awareness would spread and
lead to the rescue and restoration of human beings who are being exploited.
Participants will be walking in single-file lines all over the world—in local towns, through busy intersections
and city centers, on dirt tracks in crowded villages, along bridges, tunnels, and water banks. Hundreds of
local walks will be marching for a global end to modern-day slavery.

“There is so much power in gathering together, in showing up in force,
and saying, ‘There are more of us against slavery than for it.’”
—Christine Caine, A21 Co-Founder
Freedom. That’s our goal for every single human being on the planet. We combat modern-day slavery by working
to Reach, Rescue, and Restore lives—reducing vulnerability, assisting victims, and empowering survivors. We believe
that when we all come together in the fight against human trafficking, we will see a world without slavery.
We work in 14 different locations in 12 countries across the globe.
ALL of our offices are stopping human trafficking before it starts.
8 of them focus on fierce intervention.
6 of them provide restorative aftercare.
