At the core of our approach is a simple, elegant idea—slavery is defeated when at-risk communities acquire the knowledge, tools and resources they need to overcome vulnerability and secure freedom.
Slavery has been outlawed everywhere, but it has not been eradicated. Free the Slaves exists to help finish the work that earlier generations of abolitionists started.
We help those in slavery escape the brutality of bondage. We help prevent others from becoming trapped by traffickers. We help officials bring slave holders to justice. We help survivors restore their dignity, rebuild their lives, and reclaim the future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
