International Day for the Abolition of Slavery – December 2nd
On December 2, 1949, the UN adopted the Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others. In 1985, a UN report of the Working Group on Slavery recommended the proclamation of World Day for the Abolition of Slavery on December 2nd. The recommendation included all forms of slavery. By 1995, the world came to know the day as International Day for the Abolition of Slavery.
