In Refuse to Do Nothing: Finding Your Power to Abolish Modern-Day Slavery, Shayne Moore and Kimberly McOwen Yim awaken us to the monumental problem of modern-day slavery and sketch out a plan for how we can do something about it.
The authors share their experience of coming to grips with the power available to them (and us) in their normal lives to compel businesses to fight slavery in how their products are made, to provoke politicians to go after it, and to mobilize people to abolish slavery at home and abroad.
They point out, with passion and candor, that there are 27 million people enslaved today and 80% of them are women and children . . . that modern-day slavery is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world with profits of over $32 billion . . . that the average cost of a slave is $90 . . . and other disturbing facts.
This book educates, inspires, and gives practical “how-to” steps for getting involved in the fight against one of the worst crimes against humanity . . . a crime that is going on right now under our noses.
Every person who is involved and/or interested in the tragedy of human trafficking should get this book.
