Share the Facts. Fight Slavery

According to the Global Slavery Index, modern slavery occurs when one person possesses or controls another person in such as a way as to significantly deprive that person of their individual liberty, with the intention of exploiting that person through their use, management, profit, transfer or disposal.

Over the years, the growth of the global anti-slavery movement has resulted in greater collaboration from NGOs and governments, and unprecedented access to new sources of data, meaning we now have the most accurate picture of how many people are enslaved around the world.

The 2016 Global Slavery Index estimates it’s a massive 45.8 million. That’s more than the number of people in London, New York, Seoul and Delhi combined.

It’s a big number - but it doesn’t mean that the situation is hopeless. In fact, there is something you can do right now to help.

The momentum within the anti-slavery movement is growing, but the key to our success is to build an even bigger global movement – one that business and governments around the world cannot ignore.

JOIN our Thunderclap campaign! By signing up, you can volunteer your social accounts to help us make some noise and fight modern slavery with the facts.

On June 6, the Thunderclap will go live, telling the world that there are 45.8 million people trapped in slavery.

The heart-breaking picture is clearer than ever. Help us bring it into focus, direct the attention to the problem, and recruit more people to fight it.

  • Thank you for sharing the facts to help end #ModernSlavery
