There are an estimated 27 million people caught up in human trafficking today – the highest in documented history. They are modern-day slaves, victims of organised criminal activity including prostitution, migrant smuggling and child labour. Tragically, fewer than 2% of those affected are rescued.
To raise awareness, a new single by Matt & Beth Redman and LZ7 is climbing the charts now. YOU CAN PURCHASE IT HERE.
The single supports the A21 Campaign in its mission to abolish the injustice of human trafficking by preventing trafficking, supporting survivors and prosecuting traffickers.
A21 is beyond excited about the release of Twenty Seven Million. With the help of Matt and Beth Redman and LZ7 we want this song to awaken people to the reality of human trafficking – and then inspire and empower them to rise up against injustice, and fight for freedom. It’s been said that music creates culture. Our hope is that this song will help create and enact a culture to DO SOMETHING about trafficking.
