Active Communities against Trafficking
Did you know that an estimate of 27 million people are enslaved around the world?
Over 80% are women and children who are forced to work in the sex industry.
Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world.
If you thought slavery was dead, then you are wrong. Human trafficking is taking place in over 161 countries around the world, including ours.
We felt it was time to rise up and take a stand. We have therefore just launched our own Active Community against Trafficking in partnership with Stop the Traffik. Our aim is to:-
Educate: raise awareness and understanding of human trafficking and what can be done about it in Peterborough
Advocate: engage with communities and professionals to create an environment where it is harder to traffik, hide and exploit people
Fundraise: help raise funds to support the work of Stop the Traffik
We shall be planning campaign activities and events to raise awareness within Peterborough. If you would like to know more, or be involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org
