MODERN SLAVERY

Developed by the Call + Response anti-slavery campaign, with funding from the State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, the site seeks to demonstrate how forced labor, both at home and abroad, is equal to modern-day slavery.

The good news? You can help end slavery by writing to your favorite brands and demanding third-party audits of their supply chain.

Sprinkled throughout the site are unsettling statistics about slave labor and human trafficking “Every day, tens of thousands of American women buy makeup,” one factoid claims. “Every day, tens of thousands of Indian children mine mica, which is the little sparklies in the makeup.”

From China to Africa, the outlook is pretty grim. The good news? You can help end slavery by writing to your favorite brands and demanding third-party audits of their supply chain. The site even does most of the work for you with pre-drafted letters to popular companies like Apple, L’Oreal, H&M, and Zara. It’s time to end slavery—for real, this time.
