Calls for racial justice have exposed a tension in the modern anti-slavery movement: Should it be guided by anti-racist ideals? According to Survivor Alliance, yes. The legacy of colonialism and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade is ever-present today. An anti-racist movement will allow us to recognise the disproportionate and ongoing violence against Black people as a legacy of slavery, as well as to acknowledge that the majority of enslavement today occurs in communities and countries that are predominantly non-white.
Join Freedom Fund partner Survivor Alliance for a unique online event in which Kenneth B. Morris Jr., Co-Founder of the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives, will talk about the linkages between historical and contemporary forms of forced labour. The great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and great-great grandson of Booker T. Washington will share his insights about the need for anti-racism in the modern anti-slavery movement. He will highlight FDFI's strategy to fight slavery by pursuing racial equity and prevention of human trafficking through education. A Q&A session will follow.
Moderator: Minh Dang, Executive Director of Survivor Alliance.
