    EP 29 | Debt Bondage in Pakistan's Brick Industry

    EP 29 | Debt Bondage in Pakistan's Brick Industry

    On this episode of Until All Are Free, Preston sits down with Drew and James, two volunteer investigators with The Exodus Road. The two recount their recent travels to Pakistan, where they assisted a separate nonprofit organization in securing the release of a family from debt bondage in Pakistan's brick-making industry.

    Debt bondage is inherently complex, like many of the topics discussed in Until All Are Free. Many individuals ensnared in Pakistan's debt-bondage schemes are suffering from generational enslavement where the possibility of freedom from debt is unrealistic. In the landscape of human rights organizations addressing debt bondage worldwide, conversations often arise about the best tactics for intervention efforts to dismantle systems of exploitation that prop up this mechanism of trafficking. This episode is intended as an educational source about the nature of human trafficking in this region of the world. As an organization, The Exodus Road does not participate in transactional exchanges with traffickers to secure the freedom of a survivor of human trafficking.

    EP 27 | The Exodus Road and The Rohingya of Myanmar

    EP 27 | The Exodus Road and The Rohingya of Myanmar

    Oftentimes, the stories that we share focus on one single individual. One story. One Case.

    Episode 27 is a little different in that regard. We're bringing you a glimpse into the exploitation of the Rohingya Muslim people group of present-day Myanmar.
    In 2015, The Exodus Road had a unique opportunity to assist in a case that garnered international attention, thrusting the Rohingya's plight into the spotlight again.  Responding to the request of law enforcement and another nonprofit organization in Thailand, The Exodus Road was able to provide cyber-forensic technology developed by Cellebrite that would eventually work to crack open a case resulting in the arrest of more than 100 and the successful rescue of hundreds more from a large trafficking ring in SE Asia.

    Joining us to recount the story on this episode is The Exodus Road Co-founder, Matt Parker.

Amazing

I was involved with TER early on when they had civilians collecting tips for the local police. Hearing these stories use to be a token treat at special events. It’s incredible being able to hear so many stories I’d never heard, especially with COVID putting a damper on the special events through the year. It’s the constant reminder that I can’t stand by.
