URGENT EVOKE for Agents in the Austin, TX and Dallas Ft.Worth, TX areas. It is slightly off-topic for EVOKE, but I think this is very important and EVOKE Agents are likely to care.
Did you know: as you're reading this there are people living in slavery
in your own city. Foreign workers are being lured to Austin/Dallas and then not getting paid, instead finding themselves imprisoned and forced to work. Foreign Nannies are being forced into sexual servitude. I am absolutely appalled and disgusted to discover that this is going on around me, something I previously attributed to places like Dubai. This is so important, not only to the unfortunate souls who find themselves enslaved, but in a more global sense. The US has the power to be an unstoppable force of good in this world, but the world has to trust us first. We have a long way to go to gain that trust, if we can at all. Personally I don't trust people associated with slavery, and I can't be alone in that feeling. How can we present ourselves as a land of freedom and opportunity to the global community when people pursuing that promise are imprisoned and abused?
