ACRATH – campaign against human trafficking

25 November – 10 December

‘From peace in the home to peace in the world: make education safe for all!’

ACRATH'S campaign is 16 days of activism against gender-based violence which began on November 25 and ends on December 10 – Human Rights Day. During this time we are encouraged to work together to stop trafficking of girls and women.

Millions of women and girls are forced to work for little pay in terrible conditions with no chance of an education. Human trafficking is a growing, $150 billion global industry.

ACRATH – campaign against human traffickingHow can we help? ACRATH’s Executive Officer, Christine Carolan, said: “One thing we can all do is to look at the supply chains of the goods we buy in Australia. Who picked the cotton for my clothes? Who made my clothes in a sweatshop in Bangladesh? Which child in West Africa picked the cocoa beans to make my chocolate? As consumers we have such power to try and make a difference.”
