Strike Out Slavery raises awareness about the existence of modern-day slavery.
Albert and Deidre Pujols created Strike Out Slavery in 2017 after learning that modern-day slavery is the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world, generating $150 billion USD annually.
The Pujolses knew that if Major League Baseball teams, players, and fans joined them, Strike Out Slavery could spread awareness about modern-day slavery and help a global network of nonprofit organizations rally against it.
The inaugural Strike Out Slavery event was held at Angel Stadium in September 2017, where more than 40,000 attendees learned about the issue. Two years later, Strike Out Slavery continues to expand as other players take a stand against slavery, enabling the message that ‘enough is enough’ to reach legions of baseball fans across the nation, even the world.
