DON’T WAIT FOR THE MODERN SLAVERY BILL IN 2015 – MAKE THE UK SLAVE FREE.
LET’S END IT TOGETHER AT AN AWARENESS EVENING IN TONBRIDGE ON OCTOBER 14
In the UK, slavery is fast becoming one of the most significant issues socially and politically and yet so few people are aware of the extent of the issue. Recent research and high profile cases have provoked the government to propose a Modern Day Slavery Bill but there is still a long way to go. National awareness is one of the key challenges if we are going to see the end of slavery in the UK.
On Tuesday October 14th in Tonbridge, Kent some of the most prominent and influential shapers politically and organisationally on the issue of slavery will be speaking and answering questions. There will also be live music from artists who are also passionate about this issue.
Speakers will be
Anthony Steen, chairman of the Human Trafficking Foundation
Andrew Wallis, chair of the Centre for Social Justice report on Modern Day Slavery and CEO of charity Unseen.
Bill Hampson from the Epiphany Trust
Danny Smith from the Jubilee Campaign
There will be music from
The evening will be hosted by
Libby Sutcliffe (BBC radio presenter, Founder of Slavery Free)
In 2013, there were 1, 746 reported cases of slavery, that is a 47% increase on 2012. But the figure is much, much higher. This evening on the 14th October will give important insights and increase understanding that will hopefully inspire everyone to join the campaign and end slavery in the UK.
We’re here to connect people who have a passion to end Modern Day Slavery in the UK. This online hub has all the information you need to find organisations, people, and help in tackling this issue together.
