WHAT:

 

Grace Farms Foundation announces its second anniversary celebration benefiting a first-of-its-kind global campaign to help eradicate modern day slavery. Entitled “Unchain” and created in partnership with WPP agencies Geometry GlobalJ. Walter Thompson, as well as Shazam and Thomson Reuters Foundation, the campaign is a collaboration among public, private and individual efforts to disrupt the many facets of modern day slavery by generating unprecedented public awareness and engagement activism. The event will be held on October 14, 2017, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Grace Farms. Four-time Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter and philanthropist India.Arie will headline the event and guests will have the opportunity to engage with Shazam augmented reality experiences that shed light on this crime.

 

The Unchain campaign, expected to launch in early 2019, is being developed as part of the Foundation’s Justice Initiative in partnership with other entities vision to disrupt modern day slavery.

 

“As we celebrate our second anniversary this October, we look far into the future to a world where everyone is truly free and slavery is a thing of the past,” said Sharon Prince, President and Chair of Grace Farms Foundation. “Together, with the help of forward-thinking industry leaders such as WPP agencies Geometry Global, J. Walter Thompson, as well as Shazam, we will target all forms of modern day slavery and build a platform that brings communities together to advance good in the world.”

 

WHEN:

           

 

Saturday, October 14, 2017

4:00 p.m.—9:00 p.m.

 

WHERE:

 

Grace Farms

365 Lukes Wood Road

New Canaan, CT 06840

 

WHY:

 

Modern slavery is the greatest humanitarian issue of our time, yet far too few people understand its magnitude. More people are enslaved today than at any time in history. Over 40 million people are trapped in a world of forced labor, sex trafficking, child marriage or debt bondage that crosses international borders, cultures and industries. This crisis is underpinned by a massive $150 billion dollar criminal enterprise, at times unwittingly fueled by our own consumption and shopping habits.

Dignitaries & Business Leaders: Amb. Luis C.deBaca, former U.S. Ambassador-at Large to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons; Rich Riley, CEO of Shazam; David Mazza, SVP and Chief Technical Officer, NBC Sports Group and NBC Olympics; Elizabeth Grennan, Associate General Counsel, McKinsey & Company; Carl Preller, Chief Performance Officer, Geometry Global North America; Michael Chen, CEO and President, Chen & Associates, Chairman of the CEO Forum; and Krishna Patel, General Counsel and Justice Initiative Director, Grace Farms Foundation.
