International Day for the Abolition of Slavery

“In order to stave off covetouness, greed, and spite, citizens world over must be educated.”
~ Mustafa Kemal Ataturk ~

– There are 5.4 victims of modern slavery for every 1,000 people in the world.
– 1 in 4 victims of modern slavery are children.
– Out of the 24.9 million people trapped in forced labour, 16 million people are exploited in the private sector such as domestic work, construction or agriculture; 4.8 million people in forced sexual exploitation, and 4 million people in forced labour imposed by state authorities.

As an associated NGO with the UN, Atatürk Society of America is committed to raise awareness on the subject.
