ACRATH Working with Local Ethnic Radio

ACRATH launches Australia’s first mulit-language anti-trafficking radio awareness project in a bid to create awareness about the risk of sexual and labour exploitation in Victoria.  March 8th 2013 is International Women?s Day, a day to celebrate women and their contribution to our local and global community. Yet at a time of due celebration there are women, in our own local Victorian communities, who are trapped in circumstances of exploitation including forced labour, domestic slavery and sexual slavery.

The RAP project works with local ethnic radio programs to  broadcast community service announcements, in specific languages, to create awareness within local communities most at risk of exploitation.  With the help of local volunteers The RAP has produced community service announcements in Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese (Mandarin).  Click here for more information.
