Posted @withrepost • @goodtobegoodfoundation Human trafficking is an extreme human rights violation and from our view, a global feminist issue. It’s one of the largest and most lucrative social injustices of our time. There are more people as slaves today than at ANY point in history. The magnitude of the issue is so broad and occurs in many forms from forced labour, agricultural work, domestic servitude, child marriages to sexual exploitation. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The reality is that it’s embedded in our everyday lives, happening ALL around us - not just in developing countries or in dark alleys, narratives we’re often told with salacious points that are more provoking for journalism and media. There is no standard profile which means anyone can be vulnerable to trafficking, but keep in mind that those who face structural inequalities and live in marginalized communities can increase their susceptibility to recruitment. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Force, fraud and coercion have a multitude of complexities that are results of social, economic and political problems. There are various contributors that allow human trafficking environments to flourish from mental illness all the way to impacts of globalization. The inbound pipeline to trafficking commonly being vulnerability and types of poverty. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
There are multiple entry points for us to create holistic solutions in ending this deplorable crime in our lifetime. We must do this together by having uncomfortable, necessary conversations at home, asking informed questions, donating to organizations (like @boostforkids) that offer quality, long term aftercare + services, urging leaders to increase systems that address + protect human rights, and bringing full awareness to what’s going on so that we’re able to invest in people, our relationships and the human family. Inform the police if you notice anything suspicious. And pls share this national hotline: 1-833-900-1010, available 24/7. ⁣

Posted @withrepost • @rhonellebruder Today I was with the Cooking for Life  students 👩🏾‍🍳👨🏻‍🍳@covenanthousetoronto delivering a @rise.initiative workshop🧘🏽‍♀️. To respect the privacy of attendees, I never post photos📷 but I was given the okay to share some feedback from the youth. •  This workshop was focused on building leadership skills. With a mixture of storytelling, interactive activities, and engaging discussions. •  I was thoroughly impressed with the resiliency and determination from these youth. All of whom are working hard to better their lives, despite the fact that many have faced challenges most adults would find debilitating. • 👉🏽 Cooking for Life is a culinary arts program. That provides homeless youth with pre-employment training to prepare for entry-level jobs. Checkout @covenanthousetoronto if you would like to support this program. #volunteer #youth #covenanthouse #toronto #advocate #speaker #educator #researcher #empowerment #leadership #leadershipdevelopment #workshop #facilitator #communication #buildrelationships #networking #inspiration #motivation #tuesdaymotivation #findingmypurpose #yourpathmadeclear #discoveringyourlifesdirectionandpurpose

Posted @withrepost • @rhonellebruder Just finished up speaking to this amazing group of high schoolers for @startswithme_  State of Mind Festival. 😎🎤🤩 •  Mental health remains a significant challenge for many youths. Affecting an estimated 1.2 million children and youth in Canada. And Canada remains the third highest in the industrialized world for youth suicide rates. That's why organizations like @startswithme_  are so important because they help spread awareness and normalize mental health amongst young people. •  At today's festival, I had the pleasure of sharing my personal experience cultivating resilience and provided tools that young people can apply in their lives to help strengthen mental resilience. #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #resilience #startswithme #summit #conference #mentalhealth #speaker #humantraffickingawareness #humantrafficking #vulnerableyouth #motivation #inspiration #publicspeaker #advocate #wellbeing #activist

Posted @withrepost • @rhonellebruder I am honoured and humbled to have spent International Women's Day in a roundtable on economic empowerment and entrepreneurship. This moment was particularly special because last year I made a decision that would change my life forever. I founded @rise.initiative  with one goal; to empower and support vulnerable youth. Since then I have had the pleasure of meeting some extraordinary and resilient young people while working alongside community leaders, politicians, researchers, and activist all dedicated to uplifting vulnerable youth. And when I decided to share my journey of overcoming human trafficking, homelessness, and trauma, I never could have imagined the love and support I would receive. Thank you @howshehustles for creating a space to empower female voices and inviting me to sit at the table.

Thank you to The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, and The Honourable Maryam Monsef, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Minister of International Development, for being present and listening.  #howshehustles  #internationalwomensday #iwd2019 #toronto #advocacy #resilience #empowerment #strength #blackexcellence #womenempowerment #womenshistorymonth #entrepreneurship #torontobusiness #socialgood #businesswomen #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #speaker #activist #canada #pmo #justintrudeau #rhonellebruder #friday #fridaymotivation #inspiration #motivation
