Free The Slaves works with a wide variety of people, be it Restavek children in Haiti, war children in Uganda, women and children forced into prostitution in Nepal or entire villages in debt bondage in India. Free The Slaves rescues, rehabilitates and educates victims, and also does substantial advocacy on their behalf.
The organization will hold its Freedom Awards on November 7th, awarding those who actively work to eradicate human trafficking and slavery. Previous awards have been attended by Desmond Tutu, Camilla Belle and Demi Moore.
Jason Mraz is a massive supporter of Free The Slaves, and travelled to Ghana with the organization earlier this year to see its work firsthand.
The Freedom Awards take place on November 7 at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, Redondo Beach, California. More information and tickets can be found here.
