Since 2006 we have been building a global movement. Initially, STOP THE TRAFFIK was set up as a two year campaign to host "Freedom Day" to mark the bicentenary of the abolition of the transatlantic slavery. On March 25, 2007, thousands of people of all ages brought awareness to the streets of their communities all around the world. The first STOP THE TRAFFIK initiative was to take a declaration of one million signatures to the UN and present it during their Human Trafficking Conference. After overwhelming activist support from around the world, 1.5 million individuals signed the declaration which was delivered to the UN in February 2008. STOP THE TRAFFIK became an independent charity, and it's founder Steve Chalke became a United Nations Special Advisor on Community Action Against Trafficking.
