    “Twenty Seven Million”: Raising Awareness of Human Trafficking

    Singer and worship leader Matt Redman and Christian rap and dance group LZ7 recently teamed up to write the song “Twenty Seven Million.” Have you heard of it? The song is in support of the A21 Campaign which helps raise awareness of the approximately 27 million people who are trapped in the world of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. We at PI feel this is an incredibly important issue to discuss and bring into our prayers.

    A bit more about the A21 Campaign:

    The A21 Campaign was born when the decision was made to raise our hand, and be that ‘someone.’ It was a decision of ordinary people who decided to take responsibility regarding the issue of human trafficking. So with little knowledge, and a lot of passion, in 2007 we set out to make a difference.

    After extensive research, planning, fundraising, more research, relationship building, a lot of learning, and a great leap of faith, we opened our first shelter for victims of human trafficking at the end of 2008.

    The shelter is located in Greece, a prime destination country in Europe. We are now able to provide trafficked victims with a safe, loving, and comforting environment, access to medical care and psychological assessment, vocational training, assistance in university education, life guidance and counseling, and access to legal assistance. We work closely with police, hospitals and government officials, and are seeing justice enjoyed by new rescued victims each month (The A21 Campaign).

    Please watch this video to learn more about this issue and about how you can help!

    Here is another video of Redman explaining the song and its purpose:

    You can download the song on iTunes if you wish to support the A21 Campaign and its mission. We love that it’s only $1.29!

    PI readers, will you share the videos and song with your friends? Can we all say a prayer for the victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking?

    1. I would love to work for that! I originally wanted to be a forensics scientist (I am still in high school) but I think that God is calling me to help others personally instead. Keep updates on this please!!!! I would love to do this when I am older!!!

    2. Does anybody know if this song is avalible on AmazonMP3 (I have a professional DJ board and iTunes’ music has Digital Rights Management (aka DRM) on it, meaning that I can’t use it with the board)?

    3. I’m so glad more attention is being brought to this issue! We talked about this in my global issues class at school a while ago. I’m glad to hear someone is doing something about it.(:

    4. A good website to check out to learn more about Human Trafficking is utli.org it is for an orgaanization called Unto The Least International. They perform rescue missions to those in Human Trafficking they aid these girls and women in recovery as well.

    5. Oh…my mom knows all about this human trafficking deal going on…there is a ‘rock’-u-mentary called Call and Response about it, and another program is Destiny Rescue, at destinyrescue.org.
