In 2020, despite COVID-19, Free the Slaves found innovative ways to carry on the essential work of combating modern slavery. We also expanded to new regions, driven by our fundamental commitment to human rights and racial justice.

You can now see our 2020 annual impact report, “Adaptation, Innovation and Growth.”

Read how we worked to hold governments accountable for their anti-slavery commitments and helped advise the incoming Biden-Harris administration on ways to strengthen America’s anti-trafficking efforts.

Learn how we’re changing the conditions that allow slavery to exist by fighting caste inequality in India, social exclusion in Mauritania, and unsafe migration to countries of the Persian Gulf.

See how our teams went digital to continue essential training for front-line activists and to convene hundreds of global anti-slavery leaders for a virtual Freedom from Slavery Forum that included former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Our accomplishments in 2020 are your accomplishments, too. Your ongoing support as donors, partners and allies makes the work of Free the Slaves possible.

Last year was our 20th birthday, but there was little time to celebrate as the pandemic increased vulnerability to modern slavery and the worldwide racial awakening reinforced that slavery cannot be fully overcome as long as systemic inequality, marginalization, and violence persist.

Thank you for standing with us in 2020. I hope you will take a few moments to review our annual report. Please share it with your network.

Can you help end the conditions that cause modern slavery?
