At The End of Slavery

Think slavery ended with the Civil War? Think again. Millions of people today are held in slavery worldwide. According to Foreign Affairs, "it seems almost certain that the modern global slave trade is larger in absolute terms than the Atlantic slave trade in the 18th and 19th centuries."
If you'd like to learn more about this evil and how you can become a modern-day abolitionist, come to a screening of the documentary At the End of Slavery: The Battle for Justice in our Time. Narrated by Danny Glover, this 25-minute film documents the reality of modern-day slavery. Following the film, Jane Smith, who has worked as a researcher for Stop Child Trafficking Now, will briefly discuss what viewers can do to help stop slavery.
