Why take part?
This year’s theme is INSIDE OUT because modern slavery is a hidden crime and we want you to not only take a stand against it, but to stand out! Help ensure people take notice and learn more about this issue. We are asking you to wear your heart on your sleeve, to show the world your passion and that you want to make a difference.
Many people believe slavery is a thing of the past, safely confined to history. But there are actually more than 40 million people trapped in slavery around the globe today. This exploitation of human beings is generating $150 billion a year in illegal profits for criminals. And yet less than one per cent are rescued. More needs to be done to help those who are often powerless to help themselves.
Our heart is for the oppressed, to see justice, to give hope, to bring freedom.
We are asking you to join with us. We are inviting people of all ages and abilities to stand up for justice, to step into action – to #StepInsideOut – to stamp out slavery.
