Global movement to wipe out Human Trafficking stages A21 Walk

Activists against human trafficking joined together this past week in a movement to wipe out human trafficking.

A21 is a global movement to abolish injustice in the 21st Century. Human Trafficking is considered modern day slavery in this day and age, and with stories of foreign fishermen being transited through American Samoa for slave labor on fishing vessels, the A21 Walk was apropos for the Territory.
