    50 for Freedom

    21 million people in forced labour. $150 billion in illegal profits.
    Support the international treaty to end modern slavery for good.
    WE HAVE A CHANCE TO MAKE HISTORY
    The ILO'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 by 2018.
