Walk Free: The Movement to End Modern Slavery

Last edited Tue Sep 17, 2013, 03:43 PM - Edit history (1)


Across the globe, an estimated 27 million people are currently living in modern slavery. Stripped of their dignity and humanity; forced to work effectively without pay; trapped behind bars and worse. The world’s most vulnerable sentenced to a lifetime of rape, abuse and extreme labor.

Those who perpetuate modern slavery count on our silence to drive their profits. They survive on secrecy and stigma. Without the attention of world leaders, they have been able to enslave more people today than at any point in history.

If we take a stand now, we can make ending slavery a global priority, ensuring those trapped in the silent web of slavery are not ignored.

Bums me out when a post of two or three words gets fifty recs and important posts like this get ignored.
