Walk Free

Walk Free is an international human rights organisation based in Perth, Western Australia. Its main goal is ending modern slavery in all its forms.

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8.7 seeks to end modern slavery by appealing to the international community. Walk Free's approach to achieving SDG 8.7 involves building a knowledge base to inform action and driving legislative change in countries in partnership with faiths, businesses, academics, NGOs, and governments. Through these partnerships, direct implementation, and grassroots community engagement Walk Free believes modern slavery can be eradicated.

The initiative was founded by Grace Forrest in 2011. Walk Free are best known for their publication of the Global Slavery Index, now in its fourth edition.

In 2013, Walk Free became a co-founder of the Freedom Fund, an anti-slavery non-profit organisation. The Freedom Fund works to tackle the many forms of modern slavery in regions where it is most highly concentrated. Provided by Wikipedia
