International Justice Mission President highlighted "Shine a Light on Slavery Day."

Gary Haugen, International Justice Mission CEO and keynote speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast, wore a red X pin to shine a light on modern-day slavery.

He revealed that Thursday marks the seventh annual "Shine a Light on Slavery Day," where hundreds of thousands of people use their voice to draw attention to the millions enslaved around the world.

Haugen pointed to the END IT Movement started by students at Passion Conference seven years ago and declared that while modern slavery is “as vast and as brutal as it has ever been,” one thing is new: “we now know how to stop it for good.”

“With proper funding each year, we could see this ancient sin end for good,” he said. “If we all do our part, all of us, to raise our voices and to raise the resources, millions of God's children can note the freedom for which they are made.”
