Today, there are an estimated 27 million slaves around the world, including in our DC Area communities. This new form of modern slavery, also known as human trafficking, has become the fastest growing and second largest criminal industry in the world. Its perpetrators use powerful methods of force, fraud and coercion to exploit men, women and children through labor and sex trafficking operations.

About DC Stop Modern Slavery:

We are a community group of purpose, goals, and action. We seek to combat modern slavery, which is the economic exploitation of individuals through the use of violence and coercion, and human trafficking, which is the modern-day slave trade. Our Mission is to end slavery by leveraging the power of the community to create a forum for education, engagement and action as well as fostering grassroots movements for local change in our own community and around the world. We also complement existing efforts of NGO’s, government, private sector and the community. To accomplish this mission we raise awareness, conduct grassroots campaigns, sponsor and coordinate events, raise funds, empower and guide other groups and inspire people to take action.

The 2009 DC Walk was the first ant-human trafficking walk and biggest anti-human trafficking event in Washington DC history.  It attracted over 700 participants and raised over $40,000.
