Do UUs care about slavery?

In this moving yet pragmatic talk, Kevin Bales explains the business of modern slavery, a multibillion-dollar economy that underpins some of the worst industries on earth. He shares stats and personal stories from his on-the-ground research -- and names the price of freeing every slave on earth right now.

This talk lasts about 20 minutes and is well worth watching and listening to.

This issue of modern day slavery seems to be something that UUs would be very interested in since it flies in the face of moast of our principles. This issue is tied very closely in the United States to immigration rights. Undocumented workers are doing slave labor in the U.S. currently.
