Pledge

Build a World Without Slavery

Empowered By

Walk Free is a movement of people everywhere, fighting to end one of the world's greatest evils: modern slavery.

About the Pledge

Across the globe, an estimated 35.8 million people are living in modern slavery—stripped of their dignity and humanity, forced to work effectively without pay, trapped behind bars, and worse. The world’s most vulnerable are sentenced to a lifetime of rape, abuse, and extreme labor.

Those who perpetuate modern slavery count on our silence to drive their profits. They survive on secrecy and stigma. Without the attention of world leaders, they have been able to enslave more people today than at any other point in history.

If we take a stand now, we can make ending slavery a global priority, ensuring those trapped in the web of silent slavery are not ignored.

I believe our generation can build a world without slavery.

  • A world where it is unthinkable for one human being to be treated like someone else’s property.
  • A world where those who coerce or deceive people into forced labor or steal other people’s freedoms are brought to justice.
  • A world where everyone can walk free.
  • I commit to mobilizing governments, businesses, and communities to end modern slavery.
