Anti-Slavery Day, 18th October, provides an opportunity to raise awareness of human trafficking and modern slavery, and encourage government, local authorities, companies, charities and individuals to do what they can to address the global human rights issue.
Each year more and more charities, individuals, local authorities and police forces take action to mark Anti-Slavery Day.
In the UK alone it is estimated that 13,000 slaves exist, forced to work through means of physical and mental threat. Unchosen exists to put an end to this abhorrent crime. It is time to join forces and work together to help make the UK free from slavery
This Anti-Slavery Day we are asking for volunteers to help us raise awareness of modern slavery within our communities, and help us raise funds to continue our work focusing on the preventative methods we can use to fight modern slavery.
Unchosen uses the power of film to fight Modern Slavery — including human trafficking, forced criminality, child exploitation, sexual exploitation, domestic servitude and forced labour within supply chains.
