About us

Free the Slaves is an international human rights non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating slavery and human trafficking worldwide. A pioneer of the modern anti-slavery movement, Free the Slaves was formed in 2000 in response to Kevin Bales' groundbreaking book, Disposable People,which documented an estimated 27 million men, women and children enslaved in the world. Today, Free the Slaves operates in 600 communities in six countries (India, Nepal, Ghana, DR Congo, Haiti and Brazil) as well as in the U.S. and at the international level. Free the Slaves has more than 10 years of experience in addressing the root causes of slavery through liberation; partnerships with grassroots organizations; community organizing and sustainable right-based development; cutting-edge research, targeted advocacy and public awareness-raising campaigns.
