27 million people are enslaved globally, but last year only 42,000 were freed – less than 1%. Hidden in plain sight, men, women and children are physically and psychologically compelled into work in factories, agriculture and other industries and into prostitution in our neighborhoods and around the world. So few of the people they interact with know how to recognize or prevent trafficking – they are invisible right in front of us.
That’s where we come in. The Global Freedom Center shrinks the gap between 27 million people enslaved and 42,000 identified. We deliver online and onsite training to professionals in the best position to identify or prevent human trafficking in their daily work – in health, education, media, immigration, labor, social services, criminal justice and the corporate sector. Within the corporate sector, we have particular expertise within apparel, cosmetics, jewelry, electronics, food and beverage, and toys.
This isn’t awareness. This is action. You can help.
Your personal fundraising will support our 5/20 Campaign – training 5 million professionals by 2020 to identify and prevent human trafficking.
