ACAMS PLEDGE TO

END MODERN DAY SLAVERY

AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

There are an estimated

40.3 MILLION

PEOPLE IN MODERN SLAVERY,

despite a blanket global ban on such practices.

With over 80,000 members in 175 countries and 58 chapters worldwide, ACAMS’s global community of financial crime prevention professionals are best placed to assist with the rapid implementation of the FAST Blueprint and to successfully detect and report human trafficking money laundering red flags in their respective organizations. Our partnership with the United Nations University Centre for Policy Research – Secretariat of FAST – illustrates why ACAMS is considered the global strategic partner of choice in fighting financial crime.

The promotion of the FAST Blueprint and its recommendations is yet another signal of ACAMS’s ongoing commitment to help end modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labor and child labor in accordance with Target 8.7 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
