Shine A Light On Slavery Day With MY SISTER
In honor of the End It Movement’s Shine A Light on Slavery Day, MY SISTER is releasing an exciting new style of their signature Stop Traffickdesign. Today, people will be drawing red X’s on their hands to show support of Shine a Light on Slavery Day. With over 27 million people trapped in various forms of slavery around the world, including the United States (bonded labor, forced labor and sex trafficking), there are more slaves in the world today than at any other time in history.
The Stop Traffick Flowy Tank retails for $34 and is available on the MY SISTER website today. MY SISTER donates 10% of their proceeds to MN Girls Are Not For Sale to create a world of equal opportunity and safety for women and girls throughout Minnesota. Their mission is to end the sex trafficking of Minnesota girls and boys through grantmaking, research, public education, and convening.
MY SISTER works hard all year long to help raise awareness on sex trafficking through their work with various nonprofit organizations, their impactful apparel, and offering aftercare programs.

ABOUT MN Girls Are Not For Sale
MN Girls Are Not For Sale is a $5 million campaign launched in November 2011 to galvanize resources to end the sex trafficking of Minnesota girls and boys through grantmaking, research, public education, and convening. Minnesota is first in the nation to provide state funding for sex trafficking victims with a state-funded infrastructure of $13.1 million (May 2017). They have increased housing and trauma-informed care for victims, from two beds in 2011 to 48 beds as of May 2017. Outreach to Minnesota’s Congressional delegation in Washington, D.C. resulted in federal sex trafficking legislation (2015), modeled after Minnesota’s Safe Harbor law.
