Sunday 21 October, 1.00pm

There are more slaves in the world now than ever before in human history!
 
Human trafficking is the fastest growing organised crime in our world, a $150 billion industry and only 1% of victims are ever rescued.
 
This is an opportunity to find out more about this international crime, which is happening all around us.

A21, a global anti-human trafficking organisation, will be holding an open session at St Andrew's Church on Sunday 21 October and would love you to join us.

Hear our interactive prevention and awareness presentation, survivor stories and become part of the fight for freedom.

A light lunch will be provided from around 1.00pm, with the session taking place afterwards. The session will last approximately 1 hour.

We will discuss what human trafficking is, what it looks like both globally and locally, what we are doing about it and what you can do to help end it altogether.

If you would like to attend, please leave your name on the sign-up sheet at the back of the church or email Philippa in the church office (standrew.hertford@btinternet.com). If you are signing on behalf of others, please ensure all names are included so we have an idea of numbers.
 
Unfortunately, due to the sensitive work which we deal with, the presentation is not suitable for young people in year 8 or younger so please be aware of this when signing up.

A little more about A21...

At A21, we believe in a world without slavery. A world where every single human being on the planet is free. Our UK office in Fulham, London, is the main fundraising office in Europe, focusing on prevention and awareness of human trafficking. We regularly visit schools, organisations and community groups across the UK to discuss human trafficking and educate the public about this crime. We aim to spread awareness and recognition of the signs of human trafficking.

Since the launch of our 'Can You See Me Campaign?', which promotes the modern slavery hotline, we have seen human trafficking reports to the police rise by 400%. A large amount of the money we raise funds our safe houses located in Greece and the USA. Here, survivors can rebuild their lives through our SAFE program. They receive medical care, access to education and employment as well as a home in which they can feel safe, with a chance to be restored. This year we have already seen 119 survivors come into our care. There are still an estimated 13,000 victims of human trafficking in the UK & we aim to continue the fight for freedom, until slavery is abolished everywhere, forever.
 
We are looking forward to exposing this crime to you and opening up new conversations.
