There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in history, and they are here in the United States, too. Operation 21st Century is an organization at Connecticut College that raises awareness about slavery and human trafficking. We are looking to expand around Connecticut and throughout the country to create a united front for the abolitionist movement.
