Slavery is illegal in nearly every country in the world. Yet slavery still exists today.
From human trafficking to debt bondage to domestic servitude, slavery affects over 20 million people worldwide. People with names, with stories, with faces; people hidden from the world on farms, in factories, behind closed doors.
Modern slavery thrives because so many world leaders have turned a blind eye, failing to adequately invest in the solutions of prevention, protection, and prosecution necessary to eradicate this vicious practice. Those enslaved are not yet able to face the leaders that have turned their backs on them—but we are.
We must urge our leaders to face slavery, today.

The more we make ourselves seen, the harder it becomes for modern slavery, and its victims throughout the world, to be ignored any longer.
