There’s slavery in every shopping mall in America. From cocoa, coffee and clothing—to cars, computers and cell phones—many products sold in the U.S. are tainted by slavery. Sometimes it’s sweatshop slavery where goods are manufactured. Other times, it’s brutal child slavery at plantations and mines where commodities and raw materials come from.
The latest video from Free the Slaves is a powerful and practical business briefing. “Becoming a Slavery-Free Business” is intended to motivate corporations to investigate if their products are tainted by slavery, and seek ways to get the slavery out.
Consumers, investors and regulators want to remove slavery from U.S. store shelves. California has already enacted rules that will soon affect thousands of products sold in America’s most populous state. A national law is pending in Congress.
“Becoming a Slavery-Free Business” is available for sale via the Free the Slaves website. It will help prepare companies, industries and trade associations for the growing groundswell of public sentiment to provide slavery-free products. If you’re in business, you should order a copy today. Proceeds help fight slavery around the globe.
