#MyFreedomDay 2018

Posted by Peter MUIR

CNN is asking students and schools to join them on March 14 for #MyFreedomDay.

The event will involved students from around the world organising events at their school on the day to highlight modern slavery and celebrate freedom.

Right now, 40 million people are trapped in slavery. At least 10 million of those are children. This day aims to develop awareness about this issue.

CNN will feature a selection of student action on CNN TV, CNN.com and CNN Facebook. A few schools will even receive a visit from a CNN correspondent, who will report live from the school.

If you’re doing something to raise awareness of modern slavery, let us know your plans by telling us on Twitter or Instagram, using #MyFreedomDay. (You must be aged 13 or older to post on social media).
