Three ways you can get involved this Anti-Slavery Day

This Anti-Slavery Day, it's time to listen, and it's time to act because it's time to see change.

Survivors must be part of a conversation which is about them.
Too often survivors don’t have a seat at the table when their expertise from lived experiences should shape anti-slavery policy and legislation. Join the movement advocating for survivors to be heard and for slavery to end this Anti-Slavery day.

This Anti-Slavery Day will you join us in calling for change?

“Our voices united, our collective strength, is real power.".

Listen to Pachaiyammal, survivor of modern slavery and campaigner

“When survivors are at the table, where decisions are made, change happens. Real sustainable solutions are possible. Listen to me. Listen to us. I will continue working for my people until my last breath.”
- Pachaiyammal Arul

Three ways you can take action this Anti-Slavery Day

Take these steps and stand with survivors to advocate for change this Anti-Slavery Day
This Anti-Slavery Day, IJM has joined with over 20 anti-slavery organisations as part of the new Coalition to Stop Slavery. Together, we are advocating for survivor voices to be listened to, and their perspectives and expertise included in UK policy and legislation.

There are over 40 million people held in modern slavery today - that means over 40 million reasons to listen - and act.

That’s why this Anti-Slavery Day 2021, we want to ensure that the voices of victims and survivors of modern slavery are recognised.

Survivors like Pachaiyammal and Raja are already sharing expertise with global policy-makers through the Global Survivor Network (pictured), an IJM-supported organisation led by international survivor leaders with lived experiences of slavery and violence who jointly advocate for safer societies.

Locally, the GSN equips and establishes local networks of survivor groups in the countries where we work, so survivors can advocate for change in their own communities. Globally, GSN leaders are speaking at international forums with policymakers, philanthropists and thought leaders. Learn more about the Global Survivor Network here.

On Anti-Slavery, you can make a difference and help survivors' voices be heard by key UK Government decision-makers.
