Stop Modern Slavery
We seek to leverage the power of the community to help build a better world, one without modern slavery and human trafficking, which involve the complete control of one person by another for the purpose of economic exploitation. Millions of people around the world and even in the DC area are forced to work under threat of violence. They are paid nothing and cannot leave.
DC Stop Modern Slavery (DC SMS) is a diverse and growing community group taking action to end slavery wherever it occurs, beginning in our own city.
