Advocacy with AGD Secretary

ACRATH-AGD

ACRATH members Christine Carolan, Cindy Bohan and Noelene Simmons met with Secretary Katherine Jones, Attorney General’s Department (AGD), and her colleague Simon Newnham to discuss ACRATH’s 2022 Advocacy issues. ACRATH appreciated the opportunity to share our thoughts on a number of issues including the need for a National Compensation Scheme for victim/survivors of human trafficking and slavery, a model for funding NGOs working in the human traficking space and the Modern Slavery Act review.

ACRATH finds advocacy meetings such as this beneficial as they provide an opportunity to put forward understandings based on grassroot experiences and also to learn about the mechanism of government in order engage in outcomes based advocacy.
