Each year, millions of children are exploited. They are raped, forced into early marriage, enslaved in the global sex trade or used for bonded labor. Slavery has been a terrible but regular occurrence throughout history and unfortunately slavery is alive and well today. Even more alarming is the level to which children are involved.
Join us at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for self-guided tour of the permanent exhibit, INVISBLE: SLAVERY TODAY, and temporary exhibit, ENSLAVED: A Visual Story of Modern Day Slavery, followed by a meaningful discussion with Barbara Condo.
Barbara is the Executive Director of One Way Farm Children's Home, a non-profit organization located in Fairfield, Ohio, caring for abused, abandoned, neglected and troubled youth, as well as, children with disabilities and developmental disabilities in the State of Ohio without regard to race, color, sex or national origin.
About ENSLAVED: A Visual Story of Modern Day Slavery
ENSLAVED documents the lives endured by slaves and celebrates the freedom they never dreamed possible. A powerful statement about one of the greatest human rights abuses of our time, these images capture the experience of a moment lived in slavery, allowing the viewer to peek into the lives of those who are enslaved. What we see are two undeniable truths – the extreme brutality of the situation and the resilience of the human spirit.
