Today more people are enslaved than at any other time in human history. Both locally and abroad, millions of people are controlled though violence and exploitation.
Specifically, the Global Slavery Index estimates that 35.8 million men, women, and children around the world are trapped in human trafficking today – more than the entire transatlantic slave-trade combined.
Additionally, in 2014, 1 in every 11 cases of human trafficking reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center originated in Texas.
Allies Against Slavery envisions a different world – one free of abuse and slavery. A place where cities, communities, and individuals are deeply committed to freedom. A world in which cities are places of refuge, where traffickers cannot operate and where survivors of slavery could access all they need to truly heal.
The Slave-Free City (SFC) Summit is a unique gathering designed to help people like you create solutions to end modern slavery in your city. This is your invitation to join us.
This year we want to challenge people to have a more advanced conversation by featuring innovative, holistic ideas and methods for how to solve one of today’s most complex problems. Use the code ‘Spirit’ to get 15% off!
