October 15th 2016 was a significant day for many people in the world as they decide to be a voice for the voiceless.
Walk for Freedom is an initiative hosted by The A21 Campaign to make aware of the modern-day slavery issue happening all over the world.
Every participants were to walk in a single line in silence and some countries had black tape across their mouths to emphasise the message.
“The walk exists to reflect A21’s heart for freedom and justice, and it is ultimately designed to turn awareness into action.”, says A21.
A few of my friends and I did it together as we strongly believe that we cannot do everything, but we must do something. We volunteered for the event and each of us were assigned to different roles.
Being in partnership with The A21 Campaign, I was eager to help wherever they needed me. Although film production was an area where I have very little experience with, I truly hope that I’ve helped them somehow.
As the day was winding down, we were asked to interview people from the crowd and it was so amazing to meet a lady who brought 12+ people with her. Everyone from her group enjoyed themselves and hoped that they have made a difference in the city.
What really made my day was a group of young families who came to do the walk with their kids (mostly in prams) and they were determined to do this every year to help raise awareness. Such an incredible group of people!
Here’a short video of how the day went…
