FROM SLAVERY TO FREEDOM ANNUAL GALA
The 13th Annual From Slavery to Freedom Gala is a celebration of resilience, freedom and hope, honoring those who have shown extraordinary leadership in protecting and empowering survivors of modern day slavery and creating social change that will put an end to this human rights violation.
This event will put a much needed spotlight on CAST model programs that have literally given trafficking survivors a second chance at life and our vision of social entrepreneurship, targeting slavery and trafficking from unexpected angles and aligning ourselves strategically with those who share this goal.
CAST is proud to announce this year’s Honorary Event Chairs – Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, founders of the U.S. based nonprofit organization DNA (The Demi and Ashton Foundation). Believing that freedom is a basic human right, DNA was established to raise awareness of child sex slavery, change cultural stereotypes that facilitate this horrific problem, and rehabilitate victims.
CAST and DNA have collaborated on several fronts and continue together to find ways to end the demand for human slavery.
The mission of CAST (Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking) is to assist persons trafficked for the purpose of forced labor and slavery-like practices and to work toward ending all instances of such human rights violations.
