27 Million

BY AMY HEAGUE
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 26, 2014

“Not only is each victim the one, but we likewise can be the one.

The one called, the one listening, the one willing, the one sent to bring freedom and justice to innocent ones who are suffering. Being overwhelmed by the numbers is an indulgence the oppressed can ill afford.”

The statistics and numbers are overwhelming. There are currently an estimated 27 million men women & children held in slavery across the globe. Hundreds of thousands are trafficked across international borders every year. Many young girls find themselves trapped in a hell most of us could never imagine… The overwhelming statistics took Amy Heague to Cambodia. The one made her see she can do something that might just change the numbers.

Disabling Labelling

BY ANN HAWKINS
@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."

In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."
