American Anti-Slavery Group
The American Anti-Slavery Group (www.iAbolish.org) works to abolish modern slavery and human trafficking around the world, focusing primarily on systems of chattel slavery in Sudan and Mauritania. We partner with former victims of slavery to raise awareness of this vastly underreported humanitarian crisis. Our efforts are divided among education, advocacy, grassroots activism, and direct aid.
