ACRATH Newsletter March 2015



The latest ACRATH Newsletter provides a summary of the 2015 ACRATH National Conference.  The Conference was an opportunity for ACRATH members to reflect on the global context in which they work and a time to reflect on the ten year history of ACRATH.  Sr Angela Reed presented on her recently completed PhD thesis, Exploiting Vulnerability: A Study of the Lives of Filipino Women Who Have Been Trafficked into Sex Work. Through the research Angela, and her assistant, Marietta Latonio, gave a human face to sex trafficking and explored the complex lives of 40 trafficked women. One In A Thousand Stories, Brother David O’Brien’s creative response to human trafficking and forced labour, was launched at the conference. The 20-page booklet brings together his tapestries, his words, facts and figures and the thoughtful and sometimes challenging words of others working in the area.  Read more…
