Free The Slaves

Free the Slaves is an anti-slavery organization based in Washington, DC. They liberate slaves around the world and change the systems that allow slavery to exist. They work side by side with small, grassroots organizations where slavery is prevalent to provide small funding, training, monitoring, and mentoring for solutions to eradicate slavery forever. They use a model that engages community members to form protection or vigilance committees that identify enslaved and vulnerable families, facilitate rescue, and address key vulnerabilities such as rights education, education, health, and legal services to prevent new cases of slavery.


Trail blazing is the best way to describe Free the Slaves. We look forward to many projects together.
