FIGHTING
TO END EXPLOITATION

Slavery is not dead, it’s just less recognizable. Despite being banned in every country, slavery persists—hidden under layers of criminal activity—in ways that are more pervasive and complex than ever.

40.3 MILLION ENSLAVED

Today, 24.9 million people around the world are stripped of their freedoms, exploited, and made to live in barbaric conditions. When you account for individuals forced into marriage, the number of human trafficking victims grows to 40.3 million worldwide.
