Unfortunately a modern day form of slavery is still with us. Trafficking in people, particularly women and children, worth an estimated $7 billion per year on a global black market, is alive and well and increasing.
People Trafficking especially affects those who are vulnerable and poor and is happening now in almost every country in the world including Australia.
Stop the Traffik is a global campaign which aims to expose people trafficking and lead governments to action to address this problem.
Visit the above website to sign the declaration of support for the campaign.
