Over 40 million people around the world today are victims of modern slavery, also called human trafficking (ILO), with about 25 million of those in forced labor.  (ILAB)  Despite the fact that slavery is now illegal in every country, it still flourishes in the shadows to this day.  And unlike the infamous African Slave Trade, which thankfully ended in the nineteenth century, modern slaves are cheap and disposable (Disposable People by Kevin Bales)  But there is hope.  Modern-day abolitionists have risen up to fight this new form of slavery and are beginning to make a difference (Not for Sale by David Batstone).  When someone is rescued out of slavery, one of their most urgent needs is legitimate and dignified employment so they do not fall back into poverty and remain vulnerable to traffickers.  By purchasing the products featured below you will help 
rescue slaves, provide jobs for those rescued, and/or prevent vulnerable communities from falling prey to traffickers.  You too can rise up and fight slavery.  And you can start just by simply doing some shopping!
