Our friends at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center have just launched a new website dedicated to building bridges between people who want to take action and organizations that are working to eradicate slavery around the world.

It’s called End Slavery Now.

“Though slavery still exists and has ever since ancient times, so have committed individuals working to end it,” the group notes. “Abolitionists are the everyday people turning ordinary interests, passions and skills into organized antislavery work. They’ve existed for hundreds of years, and they’re actively fighting today.”

The new site outlines different forms of slavery and more than 1,000 anti-trafficking groups (including Free the Slaves) that are working to address them.

“Whether it’s awareness building, policy creation, rescues, prosecution, aftercare services or empowering survivors, organizations are doing incredible things to help realize real freedom throughout the world. We all have a role in ending slavery,” the group says. “Find yours.”

Can you help end the conditions that cause modern slavery?
