Freedom Week: What’s Happening Around the World

Premiering tomorrow is the fantastic One Million to STOP THE TRAFFIK play by the Oasis Youth Theatre in Lord’s Hill. You can read more about the play, and an interview with one of the actresses here.

This play is exactly what STOP THE TRAFFIK is all about, young people being creative and raising awareness about human trafficking. The effect the play is having on the local community is absolutely brilliant.

The play is impacting the lives of those involved in the youth theatre; it is affecting the young people at the Lord’s Hill Academy and the play is even being published as a drama textbook for UK schools.

Just in case this wasn’t enough, the young people in Lord’s Hill are using the play to bring trafficking to the forefront of their local community’s agenda. Members of the Southampton City Council and then Chief Superintendent of the Southampton police are attending.

The members of the youth theatre are hoping their play will provide a step in the right direction for profiling human trafficking in their community and raising awareness on a larger scale.

If you want to learn more about human trafficking, how it affects you, and what you can do to fight it in your community go to www.startfreedom.org.
