The Freedom Commons helps you gather with others and take action to pass anti-slavery legislation in the U.S. and support U.S. leaders in the fight to end slavery. 

Whether you’re an experienced advocate or just taking your first step, we hope these resources empower you to be an agent of change in your community and beyond. Get updated on anti-trafficking work in your state and nationally, and find ideas for organizing your own campaigns as you mobilize others to advocate for freedom. Learn more.
