What is Anti-Slavery Day?

Anti-Slavery Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of the fact over 49.6 million people in the world today, and an estimated 136,000 people in the UK, are trapped in conditions of modern slavery. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Anti-Slavery Day is a time to encourage governments, businesses, friends, family and colleagues to do what they can to prevent human trafficking and protect victims of modern-day slavery.

When is Anti-Slavery Day?

Anti-Slavery Day takes place every year on 18th October. At Hope for Justice, we will be hosting a whole week of events and campaigns (14th – 20th October) which individuals and organisations can take part in to mark Anti-Slavery Day 2024.
