One of the world’s major 24-hour global news channels is about to launch a multi-part documentary series on modern slavery. Many of the programs, including the series premiere, will feature FTS co-founder and president, Kevin Bales.
The series is called “Slavery: A 21st Century Evil.” The first episode, which airs Monday night at 6:30 p.m. EDT, investigates the trafficking of slaves from Thailand to the U.S.
