Freeing slaves is about building community. It's about strengthening those in vulnerable communities so that they will no longer be prey for traffickers. It's about forging a community of donors who live with the blessing of liberty. And it's about building a bridge to connect those who need help with those who can provide it. In this poignant 2014 year-end video, Free the Slaves Executive Director Maurice Middleberg describes the inspiring and joyful work of building bridges to freedom.
