What is Modern Slavery?

Modern slavery is human trafficking. It comes in many forms. There is forced prostitution, bonded debt labor, child labor, and domestic bondage. It’s hard to believe it’s still around, right? Actually, it’s more prevalent today than ever before.

It’s difficult to explain why it is that way. The ease with which people can be transported across borders, the complex criminal networks, rising poverty and disenfranchisement of potential victims, the need for cheap services combined with the inconsiderate spending by the wealthy. These are the major social and economic factors fueling the fire.

Honestly, modern slavery couldn’t exist if it weren’t for the amazing ability of a human to completely disregard another human being.

As we speak right now, a girl is probably at the mercy of man she’s never met. Modern slavery is happening. Let’s do something to fight it.
