Calling All NSW Residents
It is now more than two years since the NSW Parliament passed the Modern Slavery Act 2018(NSW). The Act received Royal Assent on 27th June 2018. However the Act still has not come into force. This means that the protections in the Act have not yet been implemented. An ePetition has been set up and requires 20,000 signatures to activate a debate in the Legislative Assembly. Only NSW residents are able to sign the ePetition.
In these days of Covid-19 it is even more imperative that support and protection be given to vulnerable people who have been trafficked to or enslaved in Australia. Please sign the petition and encourage family and friends to sign too. For more information click here.
