This month, we are announcing an exciting opportunity for Rotarians and others to experience firsthand the impact of modern slavery in Cambodia and Thailand by participating in a Slavery Awareness Trip in February 2019, jointly hosted by RAGAS and Stop The Traffik Australia. Limited to 12 participants, we hope other RAGAS supporters will join Robyn and myself on the trip. More details below.
On August 24th, the Senate Committee inquiring into the Modern Slavery Bill 2018 released its report. The report is important because it marks one further step towards the introduction of legislation which will require companies to annually report on how they are addressing the risk of modern slavery in their operations and supply chain.
Also released recently by Walk Free is the very extensive 2018 Global Slavery Index. Congratulations to Grace Forrest, Co-Founder WalkFree who has been appointed UNAA Goodwill Ambassador for Anti-Slavery.
