Slavery Footprint was the media darling at last month’s Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). Not only was their new commitment

featured onstage, but the organization was mentioned in President Obama’s address, which focused entirely on modern day slavery.
m.o. Partners Founder Kari Hayden has been working with the Slavery Footprint team since March to engage individuals, groups, and businesses to build awareness for and create deployable action against modern day slavery. Anyone can take a survey to find out how many slaves work for you.
