Chains Breaking Chains is a fund raising activity focusing on raising awareness about modern day Slavery and Human Trafficking, and funds to combat these. Today, there are more than 27 million people who are held against their will, and trafficked, as slaves, around the world. The fruits of slave labor reach every individual in our society. Slaves are used in the production of coffee, chocolate, tires, shoes, cotton, cell phones, and clothes, to name just a few. The list goes on and on. Additionally, girls are trafficked to every corner of the world, kidnapped, or sold by families, to work as slaves in the sex industry. If you live in Houston, you live in one of the largest human trafficking centers in the U.S.
