The Freedom Fund and Walk Free hosted the session Unlocking What Works to End Modern Slavery.  Releasing their Evidence in Practice report Unlocking what works: How Community-Based Interventions are Ending Bonded Labour in India.  The premise of the discussion was to convene and collaborate ideas, particularly focusing on promising practice. Acknowledging the shared theoretical values that drive efforts to end modern slavery, three guiding principles were outlined: (1) to concentrate resources, (2) to organize for collective action (social movements) and (3) to commit for the long-term.   Co-Founder of Walk Free, Grace Forrest, referenced the Global Slavery Index for new data and emphasized the importance that all stakeholders (including but not limited to individuals, CEO's and elected officials) have in ending modern slavery.
