For the past several weeks, one of the world’s major 24-hour news channels, Al Jazeera English, has been airing investigative documentaries on modern-day slavery. The network wraps-up its series on Thanksgiving Day with a town-hall debate on whether enough is being done to by governments and others to end slavery forever.
The debate features Free the Slaves Co-founder Kevin Bales. The debate airs on November 24th at 5:30 p.m. ET. Several of the documentaries in the Al Jazeera series feature Kevin too!
Al Jazeera isn’t available on many cable systems in the U.S., but you can watch it stream live. You can catch up on the channel’s slavery documentaries on their special slavery webpage. Globally, Al Jazeera English says it reaches more than 220 million households in over 100 countries. Here’s a promo for the debate:
