END SLAVERY BY 2020
Human 2020 Initiative
In 2014 the leaders of every major religious faith in the world made a global pledge, to end human trafficking by 2020. Modern day slavery in the forms of sex trafficking, labor trafficking, organ trafficking, illegal adoption, child soldiers, and the like had become a $150 Billion industry violating the fundamental human rights of 35.8 million people and declared a disgrace to God and a dishonor to humankind by all major spiritual faiths in the world.
The Human 2020 initiative was established to give civil society a platform and an opportunity to play an active role as individuals and organizations in ending modern day slavery. Human 2020 initiative is an open source platform for civil society, businesses, non-profit organizations, student bodies, law enforcement, and political leadership to take ownership in advancing solutions in response to the moral mandate of our generation. Together, with a shared focus on addressing the root causes of trafficking and broad basing solutions we all play a part in fulfilling the global pledge to end modern day slavery by 2020.
We have no paid staff, everyone involved around the world is a volunteer. Donations are used to further the initiative or for project costs. One-time gifts are valued and all financial donations are tax deductible.
You and I must be an active part of the solution. Awareness raising, supporting prevention, helping with protection, assisting prosecution, becoming a partner, doing what you can; there are many ways that you can help end trafficking.
To give those who are not enslaved the opportunity to play an active role in ending human trafficking by 2020.
