The profile promoted the CNN Freedom Project’s hour-long TV special, “Fight for Freedom: Confronting Modern-Day Slavery.” Co-sponsored by the Freedom Project and Harvard’s Institute of Politics, the program brings onstage Swanee and four more leading figures in the fight against trafficking and exploitation, including Oscar-winning actress Mira Sorvino, modern slavery expert Siddarth Kara, anti-trafficking campaigner Rachel Lloyd, and Mexican activist Rosi Orozco. Their words speak to the very heart of our work.  Please watch and share.
