    Take a stand to end slavery

    Jack & Jill of America WSCC Adventurers/Tiny Tots Join the Fight Against Modern Day Slavery


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MK2CAN recently talked about the CNN Freedom Project with the children at her local chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., a national mothers organization. 'I asked them if they knew the definition of slavery and it was no surprise that the first little girl to answer identified it as concerning the American slavery system of the 19th century. I took several comments and added more definition before telling them that there are children today all over the world that are enslaved without any of the freedoms we enjoy. My next question was, "Do you want to take a stand and help?" They all said "Yes."'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    These 5 to  71/2 year olds spent their Saturday afternoon learning about Modern Day Slavery. With great curiousity, the children watched several of the CNN Freedom Project clips that show children receiving help to overcome their oppression.  After looking at some of  the  iReports, each child eagerly started creating a poster that would show how they are joing the fight against modern day slavery.  Our  children  pray that suffering children around the world receive help, have courage, and receive the educations they deserve. Jack and Jill of America West Suburban Chapter Adventurers/Tiny Tots Join the Fight Against Modern Day Slavery!

    Thank you CNN for making this project possible.
