The Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking (CAST) is an alliance of nonprofit service providers, grassroots advocacy groups and activists dedicated to providing human services and human rights advocacy to victims of modern-day slavery. CAST was founded in 1998 in the aftermath of the El Monte sweatshop case. CAST's mission is to assist persons trafficked for the purpose of forced labor and slavery-like practices and to work toward ending all instances of such human rights violations. CAST is the only organization of its kind in the United States.

Anti-Slavery was set up in 1839 with the specific objective of ending slavery throughout the world. Despite many successful campaigns, slavery continues to exist in the 21st century. Anti-Slavery's work is divided among three teams: Programme, Communication and Information, enabling us to work effectively towards achieving our goal of a slave-free world

iAbolish is a project of the American Anti-Slavery Group (AASG), a grassroots organization founded in 1993 to combat slavery around the world. AASG has broken a virtual media blackout on slavery and helped free over 45,000 slaves. AASG Directors - including survivors of slavery - have testified to Congress three times and met twice with the Secretary of State. In September of 2000, Coretta Scott King, widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., presented the Boston Freedom Award to AASG President Dr. Charles Jacobs
