    Children attend school in a cocoa-producing village, on November 10, 2015 in Kwamang, Ghana. About 300 students go to school at West Star Preparatory, from nursery school to junior high. Child labor in the cocoa fields was a problem for generations until activists educated farmers that the children should be in school.

It has been more than 150 years since the Emancipation Proclamation outlawed slavery in the United States, but slavery has yet to become a thing of the past. Millions of people worldwide are forced to work against their will every day, in unspeakable conditions, while under the threat of physical and psychological harm. These are today's modern slaves. 

While this issue continues to pervade nearly every country and industry, there are those who refuse to accept human trafficking as part of our culture and tirelessly work to fight it. In doing so they have paved paths towards progress that are changing the industry and highlighting new ways to address the challenges in fighting trafficking.

In this new podcast episode from "FIXcast," a podcast on progress from The Christian Science Monitor, staff Samantha Laine and Stacy Teicher Khadaroo discuss human trafficking in tandem with the Monitor's series, "How to Free Modern Slaves." They are joined by Stephanie Richard of the Los Angeles-based Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking and Meredith Dank of the Urban Institute in DC to discuss the biggest challenges surrounding human trafficking – as well as credible paths towards a free future.
