Slavery did not end in the 19th century. Today there are more slaves in the world than ever before. Slavery is a complex crime that is notoriously hard to measure.

According to the most widely used  current estimates around 40.3 million people are enslaved today.

Modern Enforced slavery can affect someone of any gender, race or age – most commonly affecting the vulnerable; often driven by grinding poverty and is the opposite of a life choice.

Human trafficking also involves coercion and exploitation and has its own legal definition.

The Arise Foundation is doing some amazing work to combat both modern day slavery and human trafficking.
