WHY SLAVERY?

“You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.” An estimated 40.3 million people are living as slaves, a number more than at any other time in history - including during the transatlantic slave trade. From North Korea to the Middle East and Europe, WHY SLAVERY? uncovers the stories of men, women, and children living in the shadows of modern enslavement.
