The Amazing Change

Posted by Kevin D. Hendricks | Filed under: Featured Nonprofit

The Amazing ChangeThe slave trade ended in Britain in 1807 thanks to the efforts of William Wilberforce and other abolitionists. But 200 years later slavery is alive and well. In fact, more people are enslaved today than throughout the entire 400 years of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.

An estimated 27 million people—half of them children—are enslaved in some type of bondage or forced labor where they are tricked or coerced into slavery. Human trafficking is second only to drug trafficking as the world's largest criminal industry.

The Amazing Change is reigniting the abolitionist movement started by William Wilberforce more than 200 years ago. Started by Bristol Bay Productions, the film company behind the movie Amazing Grace, The Amazing Change is effectively a massive cause marketing campaign, pairing the movie's powerful anti-slavery message with organizations that can help like the International Justice Mission, Child Voice International, Free the Slaves and Rugmark.
