Join Me and Freedom United - Commit to Ending Modern Slavery

Build a world without slavery

I believe our generation can build a world without slavery.

A world where it is unthinkable for one human being to be treated like someone else’s property.

A world where those who coerce or deceive people into forced labour or steal other people’s freedoms are brought to justice.

I commit to mobilise governments, businesses and communities to end modern slavery.


Across the globe, an estimated 45.8 million people are currently living in modern slavery. Stripped of their dignity and humanity; forced to work effectively without pay; trapped behind bars and worse. The world’s most vulnerable sentenced to a lifetime of rape, abuse and extreme labour.

UK Statistics

  • The Independent Anti Slavery Commissioner says that there are a minimum of 13,000 victims of modern slavery in the UK today.1
  • In 2014, the UK Home Office published an estimate of 10,000 to 13,000 potential victims of modern slavery in the UK the previous year.2
  • But the National Crime Agency has said it believes the total to be in the tens of thousands, and the Commissioner has agreed.

 

Those who perpetuate modern slavery count on our silence to drive their profits. They survive on secrecy and stigma. Without the attention of world leaders, they have been able to enslave more people today than at any point in history.

If we take a stand now, we can make ending slavery a global priority, ensuring those trapped in the silent web of slavery are not ignored.

  • COVID-19 Update: The pandemic is exposing the fragile nature of policies to prevent millions from being coerced under threat into contemporary forms of slavery including forced marriage, debt bondage, human trafficking, and forced labor. Read more here. 

  • February 13, 2020: A new database of domestic anti-slavery legislation has revealed that almost half of all the world’s countries do not criminalize slavery. Read more here.

  • July 19, 2018: Our partners at Walk Free have released the 2018 Global Slavery Index, which compiles data on modern slavery and government responses to slavery from nearly every country. Take a look at the findings yourself here.

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
