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.

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.

“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.

New Canaan, CT 06840




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.




Sharon Prince, President and Chair of Grace Farms Foundation and Unchain Launch Committee Co-Chairs Jay Fielden, Editor-in-Chief, Esquire and Pete Hunsinger, Chief Marketing Officer of Everyone’s Earth and former Condé Nast Publisher, will welcome the following guests:


Artists & Cultural Leaders: India.Arie, Four-Time Grammy Award-Winning Singer/Songwriter and philanthropist; Corban Addison, international bestselling author; Conor Grennan, Founder, Next Generation Nepal and Assistant Dean of NYU Stern School of Business; Molly Gochman, experiential artist and activist; Rose-Marie Fox, Board Chair, Silvermine Arts Center; Alice Mahoney, philanthropist.


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.
