Freedom United

Freedom United, previously Walk Free, is an organisation attempting to end contemporary slavery and human trafficking. It reduces demand for modern slavery by inspiring global society to become lifelong abolitionists through learning and sharing knowledge. It channels that commitment to antislavery organisations through giving and taking actions that call on governments and companies to end modern slavery.

Freedom United partners with 71 organisations in over a dozen of different countries, including UNPO. In 2015, the UNPO and Freedom United have conducted a campaign calling for the European Union (EU) to take a stand against slavery in Mauritania. 56 MEPs had signed a letter calling for the EU to do more on this issue, which both organisations handed to High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs, Ms Federica Mogherini.
