A lot of us probably think slavery ended when Abe Lincoln said it was over. Not quite.

Human trafficking. Exploitation. Child prostitution. Forced labor. Domestic servitude. We know it by a lot of names, but it can be summed up in one: slavery. It's illegal in every part of the world, but there are some terrible people out there who either didn't get the memo or don't care. Tens of millions of people are counting on us to end this evil, and it starts with the rest of the world knowing that slavery still exists. Help us spread the word.

This video was posted in August 2012. Since then, the number of people living in modern slavery has been updated to almost 30 million. Track it and get involved at WalkFree.org.
