‘How many slaves work for you?’ That’s an uncomfortable question that most people don’t want to answer. It just feels so much more comfortable to stay unaware and deny the fact that human beings are forced to work for us. But musician Justin Dillon decided to face the issue head on and force people to come face-to-face with the reality of modern day slavery.

Dillon created a documentary, held benefit concerts, and approached the US State Department with his information. From there, he created the Slavery Footprint website, which asks you a series of questions that help calculate approximately how many slaves work on your behalf. But it doesn’t just deliver the sobering news and end there. The results come complete with steps you can personally take to fight back against slavery.
