We liberate slaves and change the conditions that allow slavery to exist
Free the Slaves liberates slaves and changes the conditions that allow slavery to persist. We launched in 2000 to sound the alarm that slavery still exists, why it does, where it is worst, and to galvanize a worldwide response. We have crafted a global blueprint for change to inform governments, international institutions, faith communities, businesses and the public what they can do to help end slavery. We're now pilot testing community-based strategies that liberate slaves and help vulnerable communities resist enslavement. We are demonstrating that our model works and we're showing others how to use it. We have freed more than 13,000 people from slavery so far. Through innovative grassroots community organizing projects, rigorous evaluation and groundbreaking research, targeted advocacy, compelling communications and public engagement, Free the Slaves is showing the world that ending slavery is possible.
