Humanity United and Ashoka's Changemakers are launching a global online competition to identify innovative approaches to exposing, confronting and ending modern-day slavery.

Today over 27 million children and adults are in slavery or bonded labor around the world—more than any other period in human history. As one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world, slavery remains largely hidden from the public eye and thrives on the rising global demand for inexpensive, unskilled labor and commercial sex.

"Ending Global Slavery: Everyday Heroes Leading the Way" aims to find holistic solutions to modern-day slavery by recognizing individuals and organizations that raise awareness of the issue's root causes, liberate those in bonded labor, and reintegrate former slaves into their communities.

The competition is hosted on www.changemakers.net. Funding will be awarded for the most innovative policy-level and grassroots models.
