“Change is Inevitable. Progress is Optional”

-Tony Robbins

This quote if true both in our own lives and the world around us.


My fellow Freedom Fighters and friends of Red Thread Movement,

I would like to personally thank everyone who has been a part of Red Thread Movement thus far! YOU have taken an idea, a hope, a dream, and made it a reality. YOU have given time, money, and your talents to free girls halfway around the world! I am in awe of the things you have accomplished and am encouraged daily by your passion and commitment.

Over the past two years, I have had the absolute privilege of working with all of you while serving as Red Thread Movement Director. It has been a great joy to grow alongside Red Thread Movement, but the time has come for me to make a transition to be closer to my family, and I will be stepping down as RTM Director. I will continue to be a strong advocate for Red Thread Movement, Eternal Threads, and the fight against slavery and I hope to see it continue to flourish!

That is why I am pleased to announce that Abby Youngblood will be my successor. Abby graduated from ACU with a Masters in Social Work and wrote her thesis on the contributing factors of sex trafficking.  After graduation, Abby came to work for Eternal Threads. Earlier this year, she returned from an extended stay with our partner in Nepal and has been avidly learning the ins and outs of the director’s position for several months now. I expect great things from her!

It has been an honor working with all of you; the Eternal Threads board, staff, and volunteers, our RTM partners, and every advocate that raises their voice to bring freedom and justice to all! You are all heroes in my book.

Thank you again for your courageous commitment to freedom and Red Thread Movement. We will not forsake them!

For Their Freedom,

Breahna Jordan

Dear Friends of Red Thread Movement,

We at Eternal Threads miss Breahna already!  Her drive and commitment to empower women helped our organization grow immensely. It will be difficult to fill Breahna’s shoes!

I am honored to be the new Red Thread Movement Director. During my time in Nepal, I lived in a safe home and I work closely with the staff to mentor girls who lived there.  I learned countless things about the organization, trafficking, the culture, and myself, and consider it a privilege to have had that opportunity. It’s one thing to get an education; it’s another thing to live it.

I am excited about the future of Red Thread Movement. Please join me in the fight for freedom, one girl at a time!

Freedom for All,

Abby Youngblood

RTM Director
