David Zach - Abolitionist / Advocate Against Human Trafficking

"Justice is in the hands of the ordinary.  Ordinary people like you and me - but with such a capacity for greatness under the surface of this skin and these bones we're in.  It's the fire that is welling up inside of you right now - from the core of your being - from the depths of your spirit - from the farthest reaches in the deepest hidden chamber of your heart.  You know you were born to be part of something significant.  We are mere creatures of dust but we’re meant to tear a corner off the darkness.  There is something about the very fabric of our souls that longs to contribute to the freedom of another human being.  To leave these temporal shores of safety and comfort into the tempest tossed waters of the resistance."   - David Zach   

David Zach is the lead singer and songwriter for the rock band Remedy Drive as well as an advocate in the fight against human trafficking.  The band has recorded two concept albums to shine a light on slavery and to celebrate the modern day abolition.  The band's community and fan base has contributed around $350,000 in donations and in-kind donations to the counter trafficking organization The Exodus Road.  

When the band is not on tour David volunteers with The Exodus Road as an undercover operative.  He spends time in brothels and in the red-light districts where underage girls and boys are sold by the hour.  His role while undercover is to identify instances of minors being sold, and to capture actionable evidence of their trafficking using covert gear, some of which is funded by the Remedy Drive community and fan base.  

Upon returning from deployment overseas David uses the band and his platform to advocate for the victims of human trafficking, to shine a light on slavery and to speak about his time overseas with the goal of recruiting and funding the fight which is the modern underground railroad.  He has spoken at many of the major festivals during talkback sessions, main stages and seminar tents.  He also speaks at colleges, conferences, high school campuses and churches.  David's message centers upon a core belief of both Remedy Drive and The Exodus Road - "Justice is in the hands of the ordinary".
