What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery -- a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to [an estimated] 20.9 million people around the world. and no matter where you live, chances are it's happening nearby. For the girl forced into prostitution at a truck stop, to the man discovered in a restaurant kitchen, stripped of his passport and held against his will. All trafficking victims share one essential experience: the loss of freedom.

Who Are We?

Where bloggers collaborate to spread awareness and fund raise to help bring an end to various SOCIAL INJUSTICES. From around the globe, we show that being young, or even separated by oceans can not stop us from coming together to bring about change. We are advocates within our online community.  We aim to use our presence and massive power of consumption to turn heads.   Suffering doesn't wait for us- and so we stand TOGETHER to help end social injustices.

BASI aims to create an IMPACT ON LIVES EVERY DAY. Not only through our blog, but through Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and Bloglovin'! We want to EDUCATE the online community on social injustices (like human trafficking, genocide, conflict diamonds, global hunger, lack of clean water...) to make us all more conscious consumers and beacons for change.  Moreover, we FUND RAISE for different charities which help end such injustices as well as motivate & PROMOTE SIMPLE WAYS to take part in bringing about change! Our hope is to take part in WIPING OUT IGNORANCE as pertaining to social injustices!  So every human can have the right to freedom, nourishment, self-dignity, and a life free of violation!

Hey guys!

Only just found this group - it doesn't look like it's active anymore. Is this right or have you moved to a new website/platform?

Let me know either way!
