Aaron “God’s Work” Cohen
I’ve been so pysched to meet him, but we hadn’t connected til this afternoon. Check his note out.
Aaron Cohen is a human rights activist who has established a modern-day “Jubilee” movement to free slaves, assist displaced peoples, and forgive debts around the world. Media stories have lauded his work finding and retrieving victims of human trafficking and have called him a “Slave Hunter”. Cohen was awarded a Commendation from the County of Los Angeles for his efforts combating human trafficking both at home and abroad, implementing human rights campaigns with music legends, politicians, royals, and religious leaders. On many of his missions in the US, in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Sudan, Ecuador, Columbia, Cambodia, Thailand, and in the Junta ruled Myanmar Burma– Cohen worked undercover and assessed the phenomenon of slavery from the inside. He was recently named by the World War II Memorial Foundation, the Immortal Chaplains, as the recipient of the 2008 Prize for Humanity for “risking all to save others”, and he was honored with a US Congressional Certificate of Merit for his public service.
