Millions of people around the world are trapped in debt bondage. It's the most common form of modern-day slavery, as well as the least understood.
Responding to the U.S. State Department's Trafficking In Persons Report (TIP) recommendation that local, state, national and international communities reach out to victims of this unconscionable crime, The Life Link established the 505-GET-FREE line in November, 2012. This resource/helpline receives texts and phone calls. The idea behind it is that the number is easy to remember, as a victim seldom has freedom of movement to look up numbers or ask for help, and when an opportunity presents, a victim can text, or call, the line for help or information.
