October 24th is United Nations Day. Celebrate it by learning about how the UN is fighting modern day enslavement.
The Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking (ATEST) is a U.S. based coalition that is led and supported by Humanity United, a foundation committed to building peace and advancing human freedom. ATEST advocates for solutions to prevent and end all forms of human trafficking and modern slavery around the world. They advocate for lasting solutions to prevent labor and sex trafficking, hold perpetrators accountable, ensure justice for victims and empower survivors with tools for recovery. Their collective experience implementing programs at home and abroad provides their coalition with unparalleled breadth and depth of expertise. Together, they are committed to ensuring that corporations and government supply chains are free from human trafficking, forced labor and other forms of modern slavery. Corporations or governments that recruit and hire workers, directly or through labor brokers, do so ethically. Federal, state and local governments do not treat victims as criminals and instead, provide survivors with comprehensive services and access to justice.
It strives to prevent and end all forms of human trafficking and modern slavery around the world.
