IMPORTANT UPDATE: the October 5th UNBOUND event in Washington has been moved to Lincoln’s Cottage because of the federal government shutdown. You must be pre-registered and bring ID.
Free the Slaves will be staffing an info table at the 5th annual UNBOUND event in Washington this weekend. The walk and rally provide a platform for organizations to unify the anti-slavery movement.
The rally includes a walk around the Washington Monument, live music and speakers, and a fair with dozens of anti-trafficking organizations, including FTS.
Volunteers of DC Stop Modern Slavery have organized this event to bring together a community of organizations and members who are all passionate about the fight to end human trafficking. UNBOUND, formerly called the Stop Modern Slavery Walk, has previously brought together more than 2,000 participants for the cause, making it one of the largest walk events in the U.S.
Last year’s walk raised nearly $100,000 for the anti-slavery movement. The event is a fundraiser for 10 anti-human trafficking organizations to provide direct services for victims and survivors of slavery.
The walk will take place at the Washington Monument on Saturday, October 5th at 10 a.m. To register for the walk, or for more information on the event, click here.
