ABOUT THE HUMAN 2020 INITIATIVE
In 2014 the leaders of every major religious faith in the world made a global pledge, to end human
trafficking by 2020. Modern day slavery in the forms of sex trafficking, labor trafficking, organ,
illegal adoption, childsoldiers, and the like has become a $150 Billion industry violating
fundamental human rights of 35.8 million people and has been declared a disgrace to God and
dishonor to humankind by all major spiritual faiths in the world.
The Human 2020 initiative was established to give civil society a platform and an opportunity to
an active role as individuals and organizations in ending modern day slavery. Human 2020
an open source platform for civil society, businesses, non-profit organizations, student bodies,
enforcement, and political leadership to take ownership in advancing solutions in response
the moral mandate of our generation. Together, with a shared focus on addressing the root
of trafficking and broad basing solutions we can all play a part in fulfilling the global pledge
to end modern day slavery by 2020.
