Most of society doesn’t know that slavery still exists. Yet, there are at least 12.3m people in slavery in the world today, and this needs to be stopped. This project will kick-start bringing slavery into modern consciousness and make society more aware of modern slavery and the need to stop it.
It ran from 10:00 AM, 5 December 2013 to 5:00 PM, 18 December 2013

At least 12.3m people, mainly women and children, are still in slavery. They are forced to work, trafficked, in bonded labour, or are in slavery because of their caste. Yet, modern slavery remains hidden because the majority of society believes slavery disappeared hundreds of years ago. If awareness were higher, there would be the necessary level of concerted public momentum needed for change. If more people know about modern slavery, they would take greater action to help stop it.
We will contact UK campaigners, schools and the media to create a wider cross-society nationwide movement to communicate that slavery still exists. We will use our existing networks and contacts to create sustainable self-generating activities, as well as bring on board key opinion formers and leaders in the social, media and political spheres. This will take to a higher level our objective of creating a critical mass of the general public to take action to help stop modern slavery.
