Human trafficking is the fastest-growing global crime. Slavery is happening around the world in the form of sex trafficking, forced labor, involuntary servitude, bonded labor, and child soldiers. That’s why we’re supporting @A21. Because when we all join in the fight for freedom, we will see lives reached, rescued, and restored. When you shop at Lush and Olive, you’re fighting for freedom too.
