It’s estimated that 27 million people are in bondage in the world today. Today, as in right now. According to A21, every 30 seconds someone becomes a modern-day slave.
I always thought that slavery was something we abolished over one hundred years ago when President Lincoln was around. Recently, I’ve realized that that’s not completely true. People are still threatened into working terrible jobs. People are sold into sex trafficking. They live in a much more violent world than I do (see here).
