I am committed to helping build a world without human trafficking and modern slavery.

I believe that modern slavery and survivor stories must be presented in a way that is accurate and dignified. Too often we speak on behalf of survivors and sensationalize the experience of modern slavery today.

I will apply the My Story, My Dignity pledge:

  1. Choose respectful images that are representative of the issue. Choose stock images carefully.
  2. Select text that accurately represents the story. Be careful to avoid sensationalist language.
  3. Respect survivors’ right to privacy and dignity.
  4. Obtain prior consent to using a personal story, be transparent and accurate about the process and how it will be used.

I will promote the My Story, My Dignity pledge amongst colleagues and friends.
