About our founder & CEO

Justin Dillon is an artist, entrepreneur, public speaker, and abolitionist. He spent most of his life as a singer-songwriter touring the world and working with such companies as Universal, WB, and Capitol Records. His music has appeared in films and on several TV networks such as MTV and CBS, as well as on records with other artists such as John Mayer and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

In 2008, Justin made his directorial debut in the film, “CALL+RESPONSE". This “rockumentary” film was theatrically distributed and become one of that year’s top documentaries. The film combined commentary by social luminaries, such as Cornel West, Madeleine Albright, and Nicholas Kristof with musical performances by artists such as Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Cold War Kids, and Matisyahu.

Justin followed up with producing the CNN documentary “Common Dreams”. In the film, Justin and Grammy award winning hip-hop artist, Common, travel to Haiti to experience for themselves the plight of the estimated 300,000 children working as domestic servants. The film aired worldwide to over 240 million homes.

In 2011, Dillon founded the website 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. Last year, President Obama acknowledged his organization’s work in his speech on slavery to the Clinton Global Initiative.

Dillon has appeared on and been covered by CNN, Katie Couric, Dr. Phil, MSNBC, New York Times, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Ad Week, CBS, Fox, NPR, Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Fast Company and others. He has spoken at the White House, UN, Clinton Global Initiative, Global Philanthropy Forum, Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, and many other venues. He has also served on advisory groups for the UN, State Department, and White House.
