Hair Stylists Support Survivors of Human Trafficking
On Sunday 26 July, ABC 774 Melbourne and radio announcer Libbi Gore presented the Great Broadcast and Blow-dry live from a Hair Salon in Point Cook, Victoria. The radio segment was in support of the Style for Life Day; a campaign in which hair salons all over Australia donated their time to cut, colour and blow-dry people’s hair on Sunday 26th July to raise money for Hagar- a charity that works with survivors of human trafficking and human rights abuses.
ACRATH Victorian member Therese Power rsm and ACRATH Executive Officer Christine Carolan were interviewed by Libbi on radio about how human trafficking and modern slavery affects us here in Australia and how slavery and exploitation is used in the products we use everyday. Therese spoke about the individuals she supports and provides companionship to. Christine was interviewed about the Slavery-free Easter Chocolate Campaign, specifically what ACRATH have advocated for since 2009.
