Anti-Slavery Day, 18 October 2018

 

 

 

 

Our key call to action in the run-up to Anti Slavery Day:

The Salvation Army needs more volunteer drivers – can you help?

Volunteer drivers are essential for transporting victims safely to Salvation Army contracted safe-houses around the country. For more information on this important  network, take a look at our guide and to sign-up complete and send off  this application form.

Ban traffickers’ sex for sale adverts

Our lobby is calling for sex for sale adverts to be banned. How is it that our modern society allows human traffickers to market the services of exploited women and girls? If you agree these adverts must stop, sign our lobby here.

Loves Me/Loves Me Not Bookmarks and Cards
And of equal importance is the prevention of grooming. Traffickers groom young people with the sole objective of trafficking them into sexual exploitation. Help stop it. Get the message out using our Loves Me/Loves Me Not Bookmarks and Cards produced with the kind permission of Yorkshire Soroptimists. Again, we make a small charge for the bookmarks and cards so that we can fund printing more. Order here.
