Traffik on the Road in Birmingham
Human trafficking – modern day slavery – is a major global problem. UNICEF estimates that 1.2million children are trafficked every year and it’s thought to be only second to drug trafficking in the money that it makes for the criminal underworld.
So now a hard-hitting roadshow hopes to bring much need attention to trafficking that happens on the streets of our very own Birmingham.
The roadshow organiser, Kerry, from the Adavu Project told Charityzine that;
“We are one in a series of roadshows happening all over the country; but the only one to take place in the West Midlands. We hope that those attending will gain an increased understanding of human trafficking, and how to respond if they have concerns that it may be happening in their communities.”
The roadshow is being run by Stop the Traffik, a global movement of individuals, communities and organisations fighting to prevent the sale of people, protect the trafficked and prosecute the traffickers.
It’s billed as an interactive community workshop, designed for both members of the public and those who may come into contact with trafficked people in their professional lives.
The free roadshow is happening from 2-5pm on Saturday 19th November 2011 at Hawkesley Primary School. To register, Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, and address, indicating that you wish to attend theBirmingham roadshow.
