There are millions of people living in modern-day slavery.
#FlyToFreedom: Help us end modern-day slavery

You might think slavery is a thing of the past, but there are between 20 million and 36 million slaves in the world right now. Since 2011, the CNN Freedom Project has been shining a spotlight on modern-day slavery. Now we need your help.


Get involved in our #FlyToFreedom campaign to encourage people around the world to fight slavery. The Freedom Project's symbol is a paper plane, representing the path towards freedom, so we’re asking you to:

1) Make a paper plane.

2) Make a pledge to help fight modern slavery.

3) Show us your plane and pledge by uploading it as a photo or video to iReport


Here are some examples of pledges you can make, or you're welcome to make a pledge of your own:

- I will donate to an anti-trafficking charity.

- The next gift I buy will be slavery free.

- I will ask my government representative what they are doing to end slavery.


Share your submissions and the best ones will be featured on and in a special video on CNN International TV. Join our campaign and help end modern slavery. It's all around us. It needs to stop.
