Why we partner with A21

The Slavery Crisis

There's a big problem in the world... it's called human trafficking. Here at Exodus, we believe in freedom and believe it's a right for every human. We believe that if you have the power to stop a bad thing from happening- it's your duty.

What is Human Trafficking?
Trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings. It’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labor. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century. 


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. 

40.3 Million...

Only 1% are actually rescued.

Human trafficking is also the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world, generating more than
$150 billion USD
every year.
