Taking AIM Against Human Trafficking!

As you may have heard we are offering support to another international campaign called Anti-Slavery International. This is because one of the key issues The AIM will be tackling in the long term is human trafficking and modern day slavery whether that be sexual, domestic, agricultural or otherwise. This is a crucial issue and is close to the hearts of various AIM members. Despite what they told you slavery is alive and well in various forms all across the globe. We want to combat it on an international, national and local level because abolishing human trafficking and modern day slaveryit is central in the struggle for human rights.

New York East Coast AIM General, activist and political emcee SAI works on the frontlines combatting human trafficking and slavery. Thus he has released this new track, One Day in June, to mark the genesis of our determined effort to enable modern day slaves to liberate themselves from the shackles of their oppressors. He tackles two very real but different cases, both in relation to child trafficking in order to expose the harsh reality of the sexual and domestic exploitation of children. AIM President and vitriolic Street Poet AK47 has also added a another very personal and raw poem about her experience of being forced into prostitution as a young teenager to her Street Poetry profile page. This is to bring attention to the brutal reality of the sexual exploitation of young girls through forced prostitution which is often a result of human trafficking. Her brave and brutal poem is available here and it will hopefully encourage you to join the fight against modern day slavery.

When you're done with that, please visit and tell your friends and family about the difficult work that Farmworker Legal Services is doing in the State of New York. They are fighting for the rights of farmworkers as well as low wage workers and they need your support. If you can make a donation to FLSNY, please do so because every penny counts.

" The nobility of our calling will always be rooted in two commitments difficult to observe: refusal to lie about what we know, and resistance to oppression."
