Founded in 2008 by influential speaker Christine Caine, A21 Campaign is a nonprofit and non-government organization that focuses primarily on stopping the horrors of human trafficking, including sexual slavery and other slave labor. Studies show this is an epidemic of huge proportions, particularly in certain regions of the world, such as Asia Pacific, and not nearly enough is being done to combat it. The charity derives its name from its goal—to abolish slavery completely around the entire world by the end of the 21st century. A21 Campaign works by educating unknowledgeable citizens; protecting helpless victims through medical treatment, therapy, legal assistance and monetary help; working to prosecute traffickers for their crimes; and other various ways. Currently, A21 Campaign has offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Australia, South Africa, Thailand, Ukraine, Greece and Bulgaria.
