Join #FREEDOMFORGIRLS and commit to helping end human trafficking and modern slavery.

71% of modern slavery victims are women and girls.1 With an estimated 40.3 million people victims of modern slavery and human trafficking, that’s a lot of girls around the world who are being exploited for someone else’s benefit, or treated like a commodity, unable to leave because of threats, violence, coercion, and abuse of power.

Who are they? Girls like Phoebe*, a 17-year-old victim in Kenya forced into the commercial sex industry, or Sophie*, a 15-year-old victim who felt her childhood was stolen. She said no one seemed to want to help her whilst she was enduring two years of exploitation having been trafficked to the UK.

Sign the pledge to help end modern slavery and trafficking of girls, and join the fight to secure Sustainable Development Goal 8.7:

“Take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms.”2

Let’s join together and help stop girls from experiencing what girls like Sophie and Phoebe experienced. If we are big and loud enough we can hold governments, businesses and civil society to account and make ending modern slavery a priority.

#FREEDOMFORGIRLS, and freedom for all.

The most intelligent way to end slavery and trafficking is to Boycott any and all companies who believe their profit margins are stacked on the backs of their “Employees”. And, where does trafficking fit into ANY business? This needs to be brought forward to every countries Border Control!!

I believe no girl should risk being a victim of human trafficking or modern slavery. That every girl’s freedom is a birthright, not a privilege.

I pledge to learn about modern slavery and human trafficking, and to use my voice to take action, so that together, in support of Sustainable Development Goal 8.7, we will end it by 2030.

Freedom United will protect your privacy while updating you on campaigns, news and stories about modern slavery.
