Justin Dillon      

Anti-Slavery Expert; CEO of FRDM & Made In A Free World; Expert on Supply Chain Risk, Modern Slavery, & Child Labor.

Justin Dillon is an artist, entrepreneur, public speaker, and abolitionist. He is the founder and CEO of Made In A Free World, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending forced labor, human trafficking, and modern-day slavery through increased public awareness, action, and advocacy.

In 2008, Dillon made his directorial debut in the film "Call + Response," which revealed the world’s 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history. The “rockumentary” was one of the top documentaries of the year and combined commentary by social luminaries such as Cornell West and Nicholas Kristoff with musical performances by artists such as Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, and Matisyahu.

In 2011, Dillon founded the nonprofit organization Slavery Footprint. Partnering with the U.S. State Department, they launched a multiple-award-winning website that asks the question, “How Many Slaves Work For You?” The website and associated mobile app allow consumers to visualize how their consumption habits are connected to modern-day slavery and provides them with an opportunity to have a conversation with the companies that manufacture the goods they purchase.
