Stop Modern Slavery and Ultrabar Charity Event
Saturday April 28th 6-9PM
Today, there are an estimated 27 million slaves around the world, including within our DC Area communities. This new form of modern slavery, also known as human trafficking, has become the fastest growing and second largest criminal industry in the world. Its perpetrators use powerful methods of force, fraud and coercion to exploit men, women and children through labor and sex trafficking operations.
DC SMS is an all-volunteer grassroots organization with over 850 members. They seek to help end modern slavery through community education and action.
With the support of their partners, sponsors, speakers, performers, walkers, and community volunteers, they were able to attract over 2,000 participants and raise over $100,000 last year. All funds raised will be distributed to anti-trafficking groups working to stop domestic and international trafficking. Please see our partners page for more information.
