A chance to end sexual slavery

Dear "el dispreciau",
Randa was abducted by ISIS from northern Iraq along with her heavily-pregnant mother. Forced into slavery Randa was taken and raped by a man twice her age.1 She’s 16 years old.
Esther Ruth Atim was kidnapped from Uganda when she was 9 years old by the Lord’s Resistance Army, a Christian militia. “Rape was on a daily basis. I was raped so I couldn’t even move…like a normal (person)...I could only move like a jumping frog.”2

Call on the United Nations Security Council to address human trafficking and slavery during conflict.
Over three thousand women and girls have been forced into sexual slavery by ISIS during the conflict in Iraq and Syria.3 But the horror doesn’t end there — men, women, boys and girls all over the world have been forced into slavery during conflict.
Captured, sold-off, raped and forced into a life of servitude. Christian, Muslim, Ugandan or Yazidi this crime against humanity doesn't discriminate.
On Wednesday 16 December 2015 there is game-changing opportunity for men, women, boys and girls in conflict zones. The United Nations Security Council will meet to talk about human trafficking and sexual violence in conflict.
Swift action from the United Nations Security Council could prevent human trafficking and sexual slavery in conflicts all over the world now and forever. All they need is the political will to act — and for that we need to show that everyday people demand change.
Act now to urge the United Nations Security Council to address human trafficking and sexual slavery in conflict.
Thank you for being part of the generation that will end modern slavery.
With determination,
Alex, Joanna and the rest of the Walk Free team
