This is the official blog of Free the Slaves. You can find updates on our activities, reports of slavery in the news, and information on interesting developments in the anti-slavery movement. It is our hope that this blog will offer a snapshot of how slavery exists in communities around the world—and what is being done to eradicate it.
Free the Slaves liberates slaves around the world and helps survivors of slavery rebuild their lives. We research real world solutions to eradicate slavery forever, and fight the systems that allow slavery to exist in the first place. We use world class research and compelling stories from the frontlines of slavery to convince the powerful and the powerless that we can end slavery. Free the Slaves is a not for profit organization made up of people who don’t want to live in a world with slavery. And they’re willing to do something about it.
We don’t waste time debating which kind of slavery is worse—brick kilns or carpet looms, sex or domestic, new or old—it’s all horrible. Slavery is a dark slash across the heart of all humanity. We believe there are no easy answers to eradicating slavery. But there are answers from the people who are enslaved and those helping them to freedom. There is no single path to liberation—the paths are many—we will tread them all before our job is done.
