Ending Modern Slavery

The Wall Street Journey has an article on a new study that shows human bondage remains widespread. According to the Walk Free Foundation, founded by Australian mining magnate Andrew Forrest, which publishes a Global Slavery Index to measure the scale and prevalence of modern slavery. This year’s index was compiled using a rigorous methodology involving in-person interviews with 42,000 respondents in 53 languages and 25 countries. The modern slave trade is as cruel as its 19th-century forerunner—and much larger than previously thought.

  • In 2017 our team traveled 1000 miles from Mumbai to Chennai as we ran the distance in 34 days speaking at schools and universities about the issue of human trafficking. In 2018 our team ran and biked 500 miles from Chennai to Kovalam in 15 days speaking to thousands of students. We thank the Rotary Clubs of India for taking an interest in this issue and sponsoring our dinners and lodging. We thank Indian local and state police for escorting us and many newspapers and local news stations for covering our efforts to draw awareness of human slavery. In January/February 2019 we hope to cover 750 miles running/biking from Guntur to Kolkata.
