Take a Stand Against Slavery on International Day for the Abolition of Slavery

Stand Against Slavery on International Day for the Abolition of Slavery

Raise awareness during International Day for the Abolition of Slavery.

While it’s been over a century since slavery was abolished in the United States, slavery is still alive and well throughout the world. In an effort to help abolish slavery worldwide, the United Nations declared an International Day for the Abolition of Slavery on December 2.

International Day for the Abolition of Slavery History:

The first International Day for the Abolition of Slavery was held on December 2, 1949. The United Nation’s General Assembly passed a resolution to eliminate slavery.

International Day for the Abolition of Slavery Mission:

The resolution aims to eradicate all forms of slavery from child labor, human trafficking, forced marriages, sexual exploitation, and the forced recruitment of children for use in armed conflict. Presently, there are an estimated 21 million men, women, and children, who are forced labor victims across the globe according to the International Labor Organization (ILO). Under the Agenda for Sustainable Development and various campaigns, the UN and their global partners seek to eliminate slavery worldwide.
