Paolo Unger Dvorchik (USA)

Although slavery was outlawed in the United States in 1863, the U.S. Department of Justice estimates that between 14,500 and 17,500 individuals are trafficked within the United States each year. 

Through a series of interviews, this video explores the different aspects of modern slavery, the plight of trafficked persons, and the possibility of life after their rescue.
