Be the change!

End modern slavery.

We have the chance to make history.

The International Labour Organization's Protocol on Forced Labour could restore hope and freedom to millions of people trapped in modern slavery.

But first it has to be ratified by countries around the world.

Our goal is to persuade at least 50 countries to ratify the Protocol on Forced Labour by the end of 2019.

Call on world leaders to ratify the ILO's Protocol on Forced Labour!
