Anti Slavery Day 18 October 2019

Anti-Slavery Day, 18th October 2019, provides an opportunity to raise awareness of human trafficking and modern slavery, and encourage government, local authorities, companies, charities and individuals to do what they can to address the problem.

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.
