It takes more than passion and indignation to eradicate the evil of slavery. It takes science. That’s why Free the Slaves has developed our Community-based Model for Fighting Slavery. It’s a four-step formula that guides our work to bring entire communities from slavery to freedom. It’s one of the most important innovations of our first 15 years as an organization. How does this formula work? Our newest animated video takes you through the steps in an easy-to-understand way. You’ll see how Free the Slaves spreads freedom by applying the principles of social science, economics, community organizing, rights education and effective policing. Our approach has freed more than 10,000 people from slavery. Our thanks to the many creative volunteers who donated or discounted their professional services to make this animated video possible!
