Oh I almost forgot, Promise 4 or the Open ended promise: You all just knew there was a catch. Well not really. As time goes on and ALENOW.org membership grows we will be calling on members of ALENOW.org to start grass root movements in their communities, their places of worship and schools. Why? ALENOW members are the network of the informed who spread that information to others in order to end the horror that is Human Trafficking, Exploitation, Slavery and Genocide.
Please join us and Seek the Light of Justice for Those Who Cannot
