South Korea school pledges to fight slavery

We've been so impressed with the response to the first Freedom Project iReport assignment challenging CNN’s audience to take a stand against modern-day slavery.


Of the more than 200 submissions we’ve received so far, one recent video stood out: An entire girls high school in Gunsan, South Korea, standing together to end slavery.


CNN International sent Seoul correspondent Paula Hancocks to interview English teacher Elizabeth Pruitt and some of her students about the decision to raise their voices.



If you haven’t taken a stand to end slavery, it’s not too late! Upload your message, then be sure to check out our second Freedom Project challenge: Paper airplanes for freedom.
