STOP THE TRAFFIK Unwrapped – Saturday 7th July
Join us for STOP THE TRAFFIK Unwrapped, Saturday 7th July
If you want to prevent trafficking in your community, if you want to hear about what others are doing to take action where they live, if you want to hear experts speaking about community action against trafficking then this is the event for you.
This is our first STOP THE TRAFFIK event dedicated to informing, and equipping you to take action; individuals and those who lead, are part of, or are thinking about starting an Active Community against Trafficking (ACT) group. Whether you are new to the movement or if you’ve been with us since the beginning this is the best opportunity to come along, meet the team, meet others who are taking action and be inspired! Ask questions, do workshops and take part in the conversation.
There is nothing like all being together in one place. Being together in person can beat a million emails. Join us on Saturday 7th July when we’ll be unwrapping community action to combat trafficking.
If you want to take action in your community then this is for you. Join us for the launch of the GIFT Box, come to a workshop, and to give away and take away original ideas.
Ruth Dearnley, CEO STOP THE TRAFFIK
