Why we partner with A21
The Slavery Crisis
But phrases like ‘slavery’ and ‘human trafficking’ can still feel ambiguous. This is the reality: slavery is violence. It’s physical, verbal, and sexual abuse. It’s forced prostitution. It’s barbaric working conditions.
Slavery is more stoppable than ever, and that’s why we’re here, rallying around the world and doing the work together.
There are more slaves today than ever in human history.
Only 1% are actually rescued.
Human trafficking is also the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world, generating more than
$150 billion USD
Forcing, deceiving, or coercing a person to perform a commercial sex act.
Forcing a person to work in captivity for little or no pay.

KNOWN WAYS OUR SURVIVORS WERE TRAFFICKED:
1. FALSE JOB ADVERTISEMENT
2. SOLD BY FAMILY
6. TRAFFICKED BY FRIEND
7. FALSE IMMIGRATION
