Every 30 seconds someone loses their freedom. Let’s stop the clock. #NoSlavery
slavery still exists?
In 1863, the Emancipation Proclamation freed an estimated 500,000 slaves. Yet, as many as 36 million people remain enslaved today, all over the world. These people are victims of human trafficking, but don’t let the name fool you—human trafficking is modern slavery. According to the U.S. Government, “human trafficking” refers to the act of recruiting, harboring, transporting,
providing, or obtaining a person for labor or commercial sex acts through the use of force, fraud, or coercion. In other words, it is the process of controlling a person with the intent to exploit them. This hidden industry nets criminals $150 billion every year, even though slavery is illegal everywhere in the world. And Americans are part of the problem–it happens here, too.
modern slavery comes
in many forms.
