Not For Sale
Saving the Corporate Soul



The Not For Sale "Stop Paying For Slavery" Tour is a multimedia event that brings together lecture, film and music to expose the human trafficking epidemic. Not For Sale founder, Dave Batstone and award-winning singer/songwriter, Brant Christopher perform together weaving songs into stories while being supported by riveting video; all in an effort to emotionally connect the audience with the global slave trade. It is a gripping night of heart breaking truth and inspirational victories.

The tour can include up to two workshops on mapping slavery in your community and supply chain responsibility, highlighted by video footage of our investigations, trafficking scenarios from around the world and educating students as to how they are contributing to modern day slavery without even knowing it.

This amazing multi-media lecture/film/music program just completed a 90 city, 6 country, 200 show run in 2009. The NFSC Free2Play program was also recently featured on for signing on SF Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt and St. Louis Cardinal's slugger Matt Holliday! NFSC was recently recognized by Canadian Parliament for the work they are doing reporting trafficking cases on in Canada.
