First, go to the website Batstone has begun: http://notforsalecampaign.org/
I followed a link from there to find this list on an affiliated site called the amazing change.
This is a list of things you can do to address the issue of 27 million people enslaved worldwide, including over 200,000 in the United States
Ten Things You Can Do
How can you contribute to The Amazing Change? The ten examples below should give you some ideas — we would love to hear your suggestions as well!
- Sign the Petition. Become an abolitionist by signing The Petition to End Modern Day Slavery. Click Here To Print a Petition. Take the petition to your school, church, family, friends, et al., and then send it to us (mailing address provided on petition)
- See Amazing Grace. This film is a great introduction to the work of William Wilberforce, an original abolitionist. Learn how you can carry on his legacy.

- Educate yourself. Use the resources on the site to learn about the horrors of historical and modern day slavery.
- Show solidarity. Buy The Amazing Change t-shirt and tell friends and family about your mission to abolish slavery.
- Create a Clapham Circle. William Wilberforce was part of a group of friends and neighbors called the Clapham Circle. They met regularly to discuss ways to advance the cause of abolition.

Download tools from this website to facilitate your discussion.
