If you do not yet know about The Human Trafficking Project - you need to. I found this through them, you also need to know about this. Now is the time to acknowledge those that inspire and encourage you to do what you do to fight injustice.
Free the Slaves is pleased to announce that they are currently accepting nominations for the 2009 Freedom Awards.
The Freedom Awards celebrate the vision and courage of community-based organizations, survivors of slavery, individual leaders and young adult anti-slavery activists who are showing the way to a world without slavery. Please help by making a nomination. Please also pass along this invitation to anyone who might be able to nominate suitable organizations or individuals. Self-nominations are welcome.

The awards will be given out during the fall of 2009. Awardees will be flown to the USA for an inspirational evening that honors the vision and courage of slavery survivors, community based organizations bringing slaves to freedom, individual leaders, young adult activists and communicators spreading the word about slavery.
