50: Refuse to Do Nothing [PODCAST]

For the 50th Episode of the Ending Human Trafficking Podcast, GCWJ Director Sandra Morgan and Board member Dave Stachowiak interview Kimberly McOwen Yim, co-author of Refuse to Do Nothing: Finding Your Power to Abolish Modern-Day Slavery about finding her place as an abolitionist. Similar to many of us, Yim once felt that she had little power to make a difference in modern-day slavery, yet when she realized the power she held through advocacy and relationships, she was able to help educate and influence others to get involve and make a difference. This influence doesn’t happen instantly, it can take two or three “touches” before someone begins to see that they too can have an impact on modern-day slavery. Yim suggests one of the best ways to get involved is by examining your own spending habits – what you purchase makes a difference! Take time to look at what you buy, perhaps the best “deal” is not a just choice when considering who made it and from where it came. And finally – the best way to get involved is always use the National Human Trafficking hotline number whenever you see something that doesn’t look quite right – 888-3737-888.

49: It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint [PODCAST]

Running a marathon takes time, effort, and training in order to cross that finish line. This week’s podcast, It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint touches on over-committing,  “sitting on your ego,” and recharging your battery – all necessary when working on large and complex issues. As the Global Center for Women and Justice continues to tackle human trafficking through many different avenues, Director Sandra Morgan and GCWJ Board member Dave Stachowiak discuss the effects of over-committing. We try to put more on our plate than we can handle, but when obstacles appear, we are unable to work successfully. There is more to do than one person or group can handle, but we can effectively fight against human trafficking by first asking ourselves, what can we do as an individual who wants to end human trafficking? We must work on ourselves in order to be effective in ending Human Trafficking.  Suggestions include identifying what recharges you and add it into your week’s schedule. Self-care essentially helps you combat human trafficking without slowly wearing out your spirit.
