    The authors of Refuse To Do Nothing are two everyday soccer moms who were burdened to become abolitionists for human trafficking after watching the movie Taken, starring Liam Neeson.  The movie made them aware of the magnitude of the human trafficking slavery trade.
    Slavery did not end in 1833 with the Slavery Abolition Act, nor did it end in 1863 with President Abraham Lincoln signing The Emancipation Proclamation.
    In 1949 the United Nations declared human trafficking and slavery incompatible with human dignity.  This did no stop the trafficking, instead it went underground.
    The authors of this book help the average person realize their power to fight slavery at home and throughout the world, empowered by God’s grants to each individual.
