One of STOP THE TRAFFIK’s long term campaigners, Trish Davidson, has won the UK’s first EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN AWARD.
Trish’s campaign work against human trafficking was recognized as an “Extraordinary Personal Contribution” – these national awards shine a spot-light on women who are achieving remarkable things out of the public eye.
Trish has really pushed trafficking onto the public agenda since last October when she began making her vision of a traffik aware and traffik free community a reality by launching the first Unchosen Film Festival in Bristol.
She chose films that explored every aspect of trafficking from the historic facts of the Atlantic Slave Trade to the growing numbers trafficked today for the sex industry and for agriculture, manufacturing and domestic service.
Trish then took the next step and set up a STOP THE TRAFFIK ACT (Active Communities against Trafficking) group in Bristol. The ACT project is being well received in Bristol by members of the public and police alike.
Trish hopes her Extraordinary Woman award will bring much needed attention to her campaign against human trafficking. Trish understand the horrors of human trafficking and says “it’s with this in mind that I am grateful and humble to receive this award. I intend to use the opportunity to raise even more awareness of this underground activity in order to successfully rescue some of its victims in Bristol and the surrounding villages.”
We would like to say a massive CONGRATULATIONS to Trish and a huge thank you for doing all that you do!
