The transatlantic slave trade was one of the most brutal slavery systems in history with over 15 million victims. On March 25, the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, we commemorate those people and their struggles. However, racism, prejudice and human trafficking have not ended. Today, we at ECPAT want to draw attention to the men, women and especially the child victims who continue to suffer from modern day slavery, through sex trafficking and other forms of commercial sexual exploitation.
