I think there are a lot of us out there who are surprised when we first hear that slavery still exists today — and while reading books like Bales’ groundbreaking “Disposable People” is important to become aware of how there are actually 27 million people out there who are currently enslaved, it’s equally important to read a book like Bales’ follow-up, “Ending Slavery,” where he only introduces us to modern-day abolitionists who were so horrified by what they learned and witnessed that they started to make it their life mission to help those enslaved.

But Bales doesn’t stop there.

Besides having all the royalties from the book donated to Free The Slaves, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending slavery, Bales also outlines a guide for eliminating slavery.

“Money alone will not solve the problem,” Bales acknowledges. “We have to change minds, laws, customs and our way of doing business to bring slavery to an end.”
