- The United States abolished slavery over 150 years ago, yet according to the International Labor Organization, there are still more than 40 million slaves around the world today- nearly quadruple the amount sold in the transatlantic slave trade.
Hello! My name is Rachel and I am a Social Work major at the University of Oklahoma. I was made aware of the the injustice of human trafficking passionate about 5 years ago, when I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Cambodia with another non-profit that works with victims of trafficking. My heart instantly was broken for the people affected by this heinous crime, and I knew I was called to join the fight. If you too are disturbed by this injustice and wish to join the fight as well, please consider doing so by donating to this campaign. The survivors helped by Dragonfly thank you.
