Anti-Slavery International

Anti-Slavery International:
Campaign to End Slavery and Human Trafficking

What is the Anti Slavery International Campaign

Anti-Slavery International, founded in 1839, is the world's oldest international human rights organisation and the only charity in the United Kingdom to work exclusively against slavery. We work at local, national and international levels to eliminate all forms of slavery around the world by:
  • Supporting research to assess the scale of slavery in order to identify measures to end it;
  • Working with local organisations to raise public awareness of slavery;
  • Educating the public about the realities of slavery and campaigning for its end.
  • Lobbying governments and intergovernmental agencies to make slavery a priority issue and to develop and implement plans to eliminate slavery;

Anti-Slavery International's work is divided among three teams: the Programmes and Advocacy Team, the Fundraising Team and the Administration and Finance Team.

Programmes and Advocacy

The work of this team involves working with partner organisations around the world on joint projects to tackle debt bondage, forced labour, forced marriage, child slavery, human trafficking and descent based slavery. It also involves carrying out and publishing research on these different types of slavery and advocating for changes in policies and behaviour which will contribute to their eradication.

The team’s advocacy work takes place through public awareness raising and campaigning, educational work with schools, engagement with the media and lobbying national governments and inter-governmental fora (e.g. the United Nations, the European Union, the African Union and the International Labour Organization).


The finances raised from the public, charitable trusts, foundations, governments, the European Union and other institutions are critical to our ability to work towards the elimination of slavery. See donations for more detail on how to help.

Finance and Administration

Financial information is available in our Annual Review and Annual Accounts

Anti-Slavery International AIM Campaign Contribution

The AIM contribution this far consists of providing online support and promotion for Anti-Slavery campaigns and sites. Santa Maria will also be involved in a local anti-slavery group and The AIM are hoping to be able to help in a more practical way in the future. SAI also works on the frontlines against human trafficking and slavery around the US. Meanwhile AK47 writes painfully raw street poetry educating people about the harsh reality of forced prostitution and sex trafficking.
