Prayer Against HumanTrafficking:
O Gd of every family on earth, loving & compassionate Gd, we come before you in prayer unable to fully comprehend the horror of women & men & children transported to unknown places to be exploited & abused because of greed & profit. 1)
We are people of many creeds, united in our sadness & our anger. We cry out together against the degrading practice of human trafficking. Our hearts are saddened & our spirits angry that their dignity & rights are being transgressed through threats, deception, & force. 2)
Give us the wisdom & courage to stand up against the evil that makes it possible for people to buy & sell & trade others. Give us the wisdom & courage to stand in solidarity with the victims, that together we will find a way to the freedom that is your gift to all of us.

1/? THREAD: What can the world learn from Brazil’s struggle to #endslavery?

This week I’m visiting Brazil to consider that question.

Combining mobile inspection teams, social action & big data, Brazil’s efforts are amongst the most sophisticated in the world.
2/ >50000 modern slaves have been rescued by the Brazilian state since 1995.
On behalf of @UNUCPR @Delta87org & @FinComSlavery I'll meet with @undpbrazil @ilo @MPT_PGT @reporterb @experian & more, focusing on policy in agriculture & finance.

2) The initial logic pans out. It stated that there were situations occurring, such as Planned Parenthood's vivisection of fetuses and selling off portions of them, that were barbaric and deserved comparison to Mengele, the Nazi scientist known for cruel experiments on children
3) However, even as the author of the article briefly covers that Godwin initially proposed the law to prevent lazy arguments and rigid thinking like calling everyone who disagreed with you a Nazi, the author then tosses that claim aside
