FREEDOM BUSINESS FORUM

2020

 26-29 April  |  Jomtien-Pattaya, Thailand

A Freedom Business is more than just a business.

It’s a Calling.

Freedom Businesses exist to employ survivors of human trafficking and those vulnerable to this evil practice, providing dignified employment and a place to develop and thrive. Our membership has more than doubled since our last global forum in 2017.

It is now time to connect once more and prepare for the future, together.
