A21 Walk for Freedom

On October 19th 2019, tens of thousands of people will gather all over the world for A21’s 6th annual fundraising and awareness event, the Walk For Freedom. Walks will take place in local communities in over 450 cities across 50 countries raising awareness for the millions enslaved across the globe.

 

Walk For Freedom is a global response to human trafficking—reaching millions with the important message: that slavery still exists. By fundraising and rallying thousands of people around the cause, the hope is that awareness would spread and lead to the identification and restoration of those who are being exploited.

The trailer for the 2019 Walk For Freedom can be seen here.

Modern Slavery Response Day Humberside

The Humber Modern Slavery Partnership, along with Humberside Police, are organising a Modern Slavery Response day to be held on Friday 18th October.

The event coincides with International Anti-Slavery Day and will be made up of two useful and important parts. The day will begin with a table top exercise which will run through an example case of modern slavery occurring in Humberside. This will give partners the chance to work together to identify potential gaps in provision and generate a joined up approach in order to provide the best possible response and care to potential victims.

The second part of the day will be police led, providing a briefing to partners on the current profile of modern slavery in the Humberside region. From this, police will be asking partners for intelligence they may hold on specific cases in order to improve police responses, prevention and prosecution of modern slavery crimes in our area.

This event is by invitation only. Contact Andrew Smith A.Smith9@hull.ac.uk for more details
