Our Slavery

In “The slave next door: Human trafficking and slavery in America today,” Amy Goodman interviews slavery expert Kevin Bales on Democracy Now!

Bales estimates some 27 million people labor as slaves today—more than at anytime in history. Bales has also helped expose modern-day slavery in the United States, where he estimates between 14,000 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the country each year. He writes, “There has never been a single day in our America, from its discovery and birth right up to the moment you are reading this sentence, without slavery.”
