Join us for Anti-Slavery Day

18th October 2010 marks the first official Anti-Slavery Day in the UK. The slave trade might have been outlawed over 200 years ago, but people are still being tricked or forced into exploitation in large numbers throughout the UK, Europe, and the world. This trafficking of human beings starts in communities and can be stopped by communities. STOP THE TRAFFIK is inspiring volunteers nationwide to do what they can where they are to prevent the buying and selling of people:

Over the last two weekends, community groups have run for freedom in Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool, and London, raising awareness about and money for women and girls who are vulnerable to human trafficking around the world. For more information see http://www.freedomticketforlife.org

On 19th October STOP THE TRAFFIK is informing and equipping social workers to know what human trafficking is, how it affects them, and what they can do about it. This is in cooperation with local authorities at the Compass Jobs Fair in London. For more information see http://www.compassjobsfair.com

On 20th October STOP THE TRAFFIK is launching the latest stage of our ‘Trafficked’ exhibition at the Red House Museum in Christchurch, Dorset. This follows on from its successful time at the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool. For more information see www3.hants.gov.uk/museum/redhouse.htm

On 23rd October STOP THE TRAFFIK is joining community groups for our ACT Northern Forum at the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool. This is a time for volunteers to learn from each other and be inspired in their ongoing campaigns to tackle human trafficking. For more information see http://www.stopthetraffikmanchester.com
