Freedom for the Weekend: Anti-Slavery International

This Week’s Profile: Anti-Slavery International

The Bottom Line: Anti-Slavery International works at local, national and international levels to eliminate all forms of slavery around the world.

What They Do: Anti-Slavery International conducts program and advocacy work on a number of issues related to modern-day slavery, including human trafficking, child labor, bonded labor, and domestic servitude.  They also conduct public outreach and educational programs. They have a huge Internet presence and lots of online campaigns.

What Can I Do?: You can sign up to participate in one of their many online campaigns, or invite some friends over and host an event about human trafficking at home. You can also donate to support their work online.

Why They Rock: They have a a number of fantastic resources available on their website, which makes learning about and getting involved in anti-trafficking easy. And you can take action from anywhere in the world.

So now that you’ve got some basic information on Anti-Slavery International, visit their website this weekend and get involved.  And on Monday morning when everyone else is talking about sleeping in and watching tv over the weekend, you can say, “What did I do this weekend?  Oh, just the usual- abolition of slavery.”

Do you have a favorite nonprofit you’d like to see featured here?  If so, let me know!
