Justin Dillon

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

President Obama and Secretary Kerry have both endorsed Justin's work and have asked MIAFW to assist with purifying the Federal Government's supply chains, which is the largest in the world. MIAFW has recently begun to partner with businesses to disrupt illicit slave markets through the use of big data. They have created a business SaaS (Software as a Service) tool called FRDM (Forced Labor Risk Determination and Mitigation). FRDM can analyze a companies data to identify "hot spots" for forced labor in their supply chain. SAP has signed on a partner.

In 2011, Justin founded the non-profit 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, allows 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.

In 2008, Justin 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.

Justin has appeared on and been covered by CNN, Vogue, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Fast Company and others.
