We rely upon strong stories and eye-catching images when writing about modern slavery. Raising awareness of the issues and the prevalence of modern slavery is essential, but so often, as survivors of slavery tell us, the images and language used to tell these stories do not reflect them accurately or in a dignified way.

Too often we speak on behalf of survivors and sensationalize the experience of modern slavery today. Sensationalist images and language can unintentionally create or reinforce stereotypes or negative prejudices.

You can help change this by adopting the My Story, My Dignity Pledge as an individual or on behalf of an organization, company or institution that publicly shares human trafficking and modern slavery information and cases. By adhering to the pledge, you can help ensure accurate and respectful representations, so that together, we build a movement that supports survivors and motivates action helping bring it to an end.

The My Story, My Dignity Pledge principles:

  1. Choose respectful images that are representative of the issue. Choose stock images carefully.
  2. Select text that accurately represents the story. Be careful to avoid sensationalist language.
  3. Respect survivors’ right to privacy and dignity.
  4. Obtain prior consent to using a personal story, be transparent and accurate about the process and how it will be used.

 

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.

It should never be that a person is owned by another. We cannot celebrate freedom until everyone has it.

I am committed to helping build a world without human trafficking and modern slavery.

I believe that modern slavery and survivor stories must be presented in a way that is accurate and dignified. Too often we speak on behalf of survivors and sensationalize the experience of modern slavery today.

I will apply the My Story, My Dignity pledge:

  1. Choose respectful images that are representative of the issue. Choose stock images carefully.
  2. Select text that accurately represents the story. Be careful to avoid sensationalist language.
  3. Respect survivors’ right to privacy and dignity.
  4. Obtain prior consent to using a personal story, be transparent and accurate about the process and how it will be used.

I will promote the My Story, My Dignity pledge amongst colleagues and friends.

Freedom United will protect your privacy while updating you on campaigns, news and stories about modern slavery.
