Today is the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery : CHRI calls for an end to modern Slavery
On the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery we are launching an online petition, in partnership with Walk Free, to support Commonwealth action against Modern Slavery.
This is vital because Modern Slavery is a Commonwealth issue. Across our 52 countries the Global Slavery Index estimates 24.9 million men, women, and children are living in slavery. There are many more amongst Commonwealth diasporas across the rest of the world.Between now and the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in the United Kingdom, CHRI will be leading the way in putting the case for strong co-operative action on Modern Slavery both by the Commonwealth, and the 52 member governments. Join us by signing the petition here.
