One of our SHORTEST trials in South Asia just ended with one of the LONGEST sentences we’ve seen for slave owners: Earlier this month, our team saw a brick kiln owner convicted for enslaving 12 people and sentenced to 10 years in prison. And because of you, the brave survivors who testified will continue to thrive.

Thank YOU for walking with us until all are free—no matter how long justice takes.
