SlaveFree Madison (SFM) grew out of a priority setting luncheon convened by the Zonta Club of Madison in 2008 and attended by other Madison-area agencies who share a common concern for human trafficking in Dane County. The group reached the clear consensus that a community-based service organization like Zonta was well-suited to address this goal.
The group that became SlaveFree Madison convened for the first time on April 27, 2009. SlaveFree Madison offers educational presentations to Dane County organizations wishing to better understand the issue of human trafficking and, if desired, to explore appropriate ways to address the issue.
While SlaveFree Madison has an identity, membership and plan-of-work of its own, it retains its affiliation with Zonta Club of Madison.
To promote awareness about modern-day slavery and advocate cooperative community responses to reduce the incidence of human trafficking in Dane County
