27,000,000 people are trapped in slavery around the world today.*

* “There’s no way to count with 100% accuracy the total number of people trapped in slavery. These men, women and children are part of a hidden population. Conservative estimates by the ILO say the number is as low as 20 million. In 2014, The Walk Free Foundation estimated the number is closer to 35.8 million. We’ve landed in the middle of the range with 27 million. But to us, the number isn’t as important as the people.

Their lives. Their stories. Their futures. To us, even 1 is too many.”

What is Slavery?

Human beings are sold for sex and exploited every day. Against their will, they are forced to work without pay, trapped, abused, subject to violence or the threat of violence, and unable to walk away. They feel worthless. They are owned by another person.

They have no hope of ever being set free.

They have been coerced into believing that this is the only life they will ever know.
