Rogue Valley residents participate in #EndItMovement

Medford, Ore. — People around the Rogue Valley and the world are coming together to end human trafficking. Folks are flooding social media with selfies of red x’s marked on their hands. It’s an annual nationwide effort to raise awareness about modern day slavery, or trafficking.

“This day is all about raising awareness for what this is,” Oregon state coordinator for Rotarians Against Slavery, Caleb LaPlante says, “How is this still even around in our world? How is it in our United States and even in our local communities?”

“Let’s become knowledgeable of what we’re talking about and then learn how to do something about it,” LaPlante says.

Folks are invited to take a selfie and post it with the hashtag #EndItMovement. The hope is that it will prompt conversation and get people sharing information about the issue.
