Freedom From Slavery Forum
The Freedom from Slavery Forum is an opportunity for global strategy and collective action against modern slavery. Orchestrated by Free the Slaves, the forum cultivates collaboration, fosters innovation, and centers those with lived experience to strengthen the anti-slavery movement.
Why Is The Forum Needed?

Despite numerous initiatives, the absence of a cohesive strategy often leads to fragmented and competing actions.
In a field with limited resources, the forum aims to unify efforts to maximize impact.
A unique feature is the active participation of survivors, whose lived experiences contribute an invaluable dimension to strategic planning, implementation, and evaluation of anti-modern slavery efforts worldwide.
The Forum is a vital platform for multi-sectoral collaboration, ensuring that resources are leveraged effectively for greater impact.
