It is an unfortunate reality that, in the 21st century, people are still bought and sold as property. Even though the transatlantic slave trade was abolished more than 225 years ago, an international human trafficking market continues to exist.

Collaboration across sectors is required to effectively change the market incentives that perpetuate the sale of people.
