You might have noticed a bit of chatter in the news lately about anti-trafficking and modern slavery in Australia and around the world. People are paying attention to what's going on and they, like us, want to do something to change it. Join us in calling the Australian Parliament to pass robust legislation against modern slavery. Contact your politician today.
It's incredible to think that in our time industries like fashion, food and electronics may be tainted with slavery. The good news is the Australian Parliament is undertaking an Inquiry into Australia needing a Modern Slavery Act. Join us in calling for a robust act that we believe will make a real difference to millions of slaves in our world.
The Freedom Project is part of the Stop The Traffik Australia coalition, and together we have recently launched the Be Slave Free campaign in order to achieve a concerted effort to make the biggest impact on the Australian government to influence what is included in the Modern Slavery Act. We want to ensure that companies are held to account for the business that they do. We want to put pressure not the government and private companies to be aware and take steps to reduce and ultimately eliminate all forms of slavery in any part of their business activities.
But we can't do it on our own. The Freedom Project, and the Stop The Traffik coalition is strong because it is a movement of individuals fighting for freedom, all working together to achieve the same goal.
Now we will ask you to spend a few minutes to take action - contact your politician and let them know why you care about these issues and what you want them to do about it. It's easier and less scary than it sounds - we've equipped you with everything you need to know. You can contact them in various ways: email, phone, social media, and you will even be given templates you can use/adapt. You just need to tell us what postcode you live in. It's simple and will only take a few minutes of your time, but it's powerful and by using your voice, you can make a real difference. So thank you!
