Making the Invisible, Visible #makehervisible -

Every 5 minutes a child runs away from home in the UK. 70% go unreported as missing. Thousands of child runaways sleep on our streets, unnoticed and alone. They are UK's invisible shame. Many like Jessica, whose story is told here, end up begging, selling drugs, or are forced into prostitution.

Please share Jessica's story. #Makehervisible

Young people, especially girls, are prime targets for pimps and abusers. Here at Railway Children we race to reach children as soon as they arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser does. Our trained street teams find and protect young people. 

Please join our fight and make the invisible visible by sharing this film.

AJustCause Coast2Coast-Mainstream Media Won't Cover Wrongful Conviction at Onset

AJustCause Coast2Coast-Mainstream Media Won't Cover Wrongful Conviction at Onset | socialaction2014 | Scoop.it
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person. Our Special Guests for tonight's show are WGRZ-TV Producer, Megan Blarr and Investigative Reporter, Jerry Mitchell who is currently writing for the Clarion-Leger. A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org. For more information, about A Just Cause and to Donate to the IRP6 legal defense fund, visit www.a-justcause.com.
