Program areas at Free the Slaves

Front-line anti-slavery programs: fts and its partner organizations use a community-based model to help communities resist forced and bonded labor and sex trafficking of adults and children in india, nepal, haiti, ghana, senegal and the democratic republic of the congo. We provide the structure and training for collective action by slaves and former slaves to demand freedom, payment of wages, and protection from violence. We organize leaders to educate their communities about slavery, to take action to rescue their family members and neighbors who are in slavery, and to work to develop new systems that address key vulnerabilities within the community. These vulnerabilities may include ensuring the availability of education for children, vocational projects for communities, or access to affordable health care and legal representation. We engage local, regional and national officials to press for enforcement and strengthening of antislavery laws. We support lawyers who press for justice for victims. ...

Community liberation initiative - fts works to catalyze a civil society movement against slavery through mainstreaming anti-slavery work into field programs at international relief and development organizations, integrating the fts community-based anti-slavery approaches into organizations that already work at a community level in slavery hot spots, and focusing on slavery-proofing entire communities rather than rescuing individuals, creating sustained community resistance and resilience. It trains and coaches field staff, using the fts cl toolkit, measuring the impact of this work through its monitoring and evaluation processes.

Communications and advocacy: fts increases awareness of slavery and our methods to eradicate it, and fosters public engagement in policy advocacy, through mass media, online outreach, video production, speaking engagements, conferences, public events, college chapters and faith community outreach. Fts trains front-line partner organizations and others to strengthen communications and media relations skills to improve outreach to slavery victims, vulnerable populations and religious, traditional and civic leaders.
