Free the Slaves

27 million people are enslaved in the world today — that's double the amount of people taken from Africa during the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine has traveled to the frontlines of slavery to capture the brutality of bondage, as well as the success stories of people breaking free with the assistance of Free the Slaves.

Now, tens of thousands are learning about Lisa’s journey—both the physical challenges of crawling hundreds of feet down rickety mines shafts, and the deeply disturbing psychological journey of confronting slavery face-to-face. See Lisa’s powerful TED talk; it’s only 18 minutes long, but it’s a powerful testimony that will leave you inspired.
