You may have noticed the banner above the comic. It’s for Comic Creators for Freedom. This is a group of webcomic creators spreading awareness of human trafficking.
There are currently 27 million enslaved people worldwide- more than double the number of enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. UNICEF estimates that 1.2 million children every year are sold into slavery, most of it sexual. The US Department of Justice estimates 16,000 victims of human trafficking are brought into the United States every year.
When you donate, you’ll help support prevention and care for victims. You’ll also get a spiffy wallpaper featuring the ladies of several webcomics, including Lavender.
If you’re unable to donate yourself, you can help by spreading the word.
