Abolish Slavery Everywhere, Forever

 

 

 

Freedom Report 2017

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

DEAR ABOLITIONISTS,

 

This is your report, not just our own. Every year, we look back so that we can look forward together. In the pages that follow, you’ll see it for what it is–a reflection of the real moments and stories of freedom that you have made possible.

There are millions of people being trafficked right before our eyes in the 21st century. They’re sitting next to us in class and across from us at the nail bar. They’re standing on our busy streets and working in our neighbor’s houses. They are passing us in taxis and picking the fruit we buy at the store. We cannot ignore the problem, and that’s exactly why we’re here–to keep opening eyes and doors and opportunities until we see a world without slavery.

2017 was a year of ‘more than ever before’s–more survivors in our care, court cases won, traffickers sentenced, professionals trained, and students reached. Our hope is that as you read this report, you’ll hear the hammer in the courtroom and the ringing of our Resource Line phones. That you’ll feel our survivors’ joy in the freedom centers, see the awareness in the hands of Walk For Freedom participants, and ultimately experience the weight of the global story of freedom that you’re helping to write.
 

On behalf of our entire A21 team and all of our survivors, we say thank you. We couldn’t do this without you.

In 2018, let’s dig deeper and dare to believe that we will abolish human trafficking together.

A21 started because one

person, Christine Caine, noticed

one missing child poster in a

Greek airport and decided to

take action. Now, millions know

about human trafficking and are

doing the same thing:

taking action.

RESCUE
   


The Rescue Strategy

It's about seeing.

 
It's about training frontline

professionals and the public to

identify and report crime. It's

about hotlines, child advocacy

centers, and partnerships with

law enforcement.   

It's also about justice.

 
It's about assisting in the

prosecution of perpetrators and

coordinating legal assistance.

It's about assisting victims through

the legal process and to advocate

for their rights under the law.

   

It interrupts slavery.
