About

Overview

As shocking as it may seem, slavery is far from a thing of the past. In fact, there are an estimated 27 million victims of modern-day slavery—more than at the height of the Roman Empire or the peak of the Antebellum Era in the South. And by far the majority of those enslaved are society’s most easily marginalized—women, children, and migrants.
