Anti-Slavery Day

18th October 2017

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.

Join the team at Unchosen in the battle to prevent exploitation and to discover modern slavery victims. 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.

This year we are launching the #FilmYourFreedom campaign in order to raise awareness of modern slavery within our communities. By encompassing the power of film we want to recognise personal freedom and those smaller things in life that make you feel happy and free; in order to recognise that some people within our commuity may not have these freedoms due to the exploitation of modern slavery.

Get involved by making a short video showing what freedom means to you. Share this video on our social media pages and with your friends and family. The more people we can get thinking about what modern slavery looks like, we can begin to spot the signs of slavery in our communities.
