Rock Against Trafficking
Human Trafficking, one of the largest crimes, existing in every country of the world, second only to drugs, goes largely unchecked.
A handful of organizations are hard at work rescuing the children, women and men who have become victims of this scourge.
Over 28,000,000 people, many under 15 and even 10 years old, are in conditions of slavery. This grass roots project, R.A.T. started by rock producer Gary Miller, is going to be THE engine of change. He is the catalyst to bring major artists together to raise money and bring the universal attention and light of truth that is needed to address and stop this inhumanity. But, as with all great causes, we are building this on great ideas which need grassroots, basic funding to take off.
If you want to find out more and even better get involved, then contact us for more information.
Artists involved in this are: GARY MILLER, SLASH, STING, SANTANA, HEART, JOSS STONE, NEAL SCHON & ARNEL PINEDA FROM JOURNEY, JULIAN LENNON, GLENN HUGHES, ANDY FRASER, ENVOGUE, SAM ALIANO and more. Plus a lot of backstage help.

At this point we need to build the stage to bring this to 7 Billion people’s attention. If you can help us reach our base level of funding to get the record produced and released, then you will have been a part of one of the most important humanitarian efforts in history! Many of the songs have already been recorded by the artists involved at Gary’s own personal expense. Now, backed by his non-profit foundation, Gary is in the final stages of production on the last songs for the album and will be releasing the record in Spring 2016. This will be the tool to raise worldwide wide awareness and funding to effectively address the problem, with enough resources to create a full solution.
A solution to human trafficking at a global level (and it IS a global problem) must include governments protecting their citizens, legal help, and after rescue, medical help. Education for those who have known nothing but slavery and abuse. And economic resources to empower these same former victims to become entrepreneurs, employees, and participants in raising the standards of society.
A victim, once rescued from their tragedy only remains a victim by their own choices and opportunities. Lack of opportunity whether due to lack of personal health, education, threats, prejudice or other factors are the reasons the victim remains in their condition. A return to health and education can change the person’s choices and thereby their ability to contribute to society. With every donation you contribute to actual lives being saved.
FHFI is working together with R.A.T. to raise US$250,000 to pull all this off (which includes release event costs, etc.).
Major donors will be acknowledged on the jacket and website of the album release. Contact FHFI directly for interest in major contributions. There is a short term window to help address and handle this situation. This is going International, but it is the starting stage. Help us build it.
