Feb. 13 is Shine a Light on Slavery Day. There are an estimated 40 million people enslaved today, according to the Global Slavery Index. That’s more than there have ever been throughout history. Marriott International announced it was partnering with ECPAT-USA, an organization that fights to end child sex exploitation, and Polaris, an organization that works against sex and labor trafficking in North America. These organizations and more are part of the #ENDITMOVEMENT, a coalition of groups, companies and individuals that is working to raise awareness about and put an end to human trafficking.
