Advocating in Federal Parliament
ACRATH’s annual visit to Federal Parliament will take place during September. ACRATH members will gather in Canberra on 11th for briefing sessions before descending on the halls of Parliament on Monday 12th September. During our visit we will acknowledge the bipartisan support that exists for this issue and provide members of Parliament with a snapshot of ACRATH’s activities during the past twelve months. ACRATH has three main advocacy points for the 2016 visit to Parliament: ongoing funding for NGOs working against human trafficking, the needs of overseas workers facing forced and exploited labour in Australia and the need to establish a national compensation scheme for people who have been trafficked into Australia. Members of Parliament will be provided with a sheet outlining our advocacy points. Download a coy of the handout here.
