GOOD and CNN iReport Are Working to Fight Human Trafficking. Help Out.

There are more people forced into labor today than at any point in human history. Let's change that.


You may think slavery is a problem of the past, but in fact, there are more people forced into labor today than at any point in human history. To help mobilize people to do something about this crisis (it's as big a problem as any facing the world right now), the CNN Freedom Project is "working to shine a spotlight on the horrors of human trafficking, amplify the voices of the victims, highlight success stories and share ways that everyone can make a difference."

Sounds like a worthy cause to us, so we're helping out and we want you to join. As a first step, GOOD and CNN iReport are asking you to submit a video of yourself (preferably standing) saying "I'm taking a stand to end slavery," or a picture of yourself holding a sign with the same message. Upload your photo or video to the assignment page here.
