The harsh truth is that more than 45 million people are trapped in slavery today and 71% of businesses admit there is probably slavery in their supply chain.
slavefreetrade’s mission is to eliminate modern slavery by mobilizing all stakeholders to demand slave-free products guaranteed through the use of blockchain technology. They envision an equitable, just world in which no children, women or men are trafficked, forced or bonded to work.
Why we love slavefreetrade
An organization is a group of people. We’ve had the pleasure to talk multiple times with the founders of slavefreetrade and it’s hard not to fall in love with their passion and dedication. They’re great at mobilizing people and getting things done. If someone can tackle this immense and urgent problem, it’s them.
We will, of course, continue to support them in many ways. You can too.
Ambition and how you can help
Brian, Helen, slavefreetrade’s board members and the team are doing an amazing job at creating the first verification framework dedicated to eliminating slavery in business supply chains.
