VIDEO: TD Jakes On Libyan Slave Trade, "We Cannot Be Silent"

Dec 01, 2017 by Alyssa Duvall

On Wednesday, Bishop TD Jakes joined a growing number of celebrities and activists calling for awareness and an end to the slave trade in Libya. Earlier this fall, CNN published an investigative report revealing migrants and refugees being sold as farm laborers for as little as $400 in a nighttime auction. Jakes, pastor of a Dallas megachurch, said in an impassioned Instagram post, "for the price of $400 a person loses their dignity, their pride, and sometimes their life." View the bishop's entire video below:

The slave trade that is going on in Libya, and even globally, is an atrocity that has to STOP. We, as a people have to partner together to put an end to this horrific disregard for human life. Here are a few ways you can help: —Use YOUR voice (Social Media, your community, etc.) to raise awareness! —Support organizations that give aid to countries from which migrants are fleeing. —Contact your local officials and become an advocate in the fight against slavery & human trafficking. We have got to say something…we CANNOT be silent. #Libya #HumanTrafficking #SlaveryInLibya #LibyanSlaveTrade. @cnn @msnbc @foxnews #silenceisourgreatestenemy #ifyouseesomethingsaysomething
