“A commitment to advocate for the rights of children. Working with ACRATH is one way that we can promote this within Australia and beyond. The exploitation of women and children is predominantly carried out by men, so it is incumbent upon men to be at the forefront of addressing and eliminating this evil from our world.”

It is difficult to comprehend that the incidents of modern slavery crimes are a growing problem in Australia. Most of us naturally believe that in Australia, a modern democracy, everyone is free from slavery in its various forms and individual rights are universally protected by the law. The work of ACRATH has opened my eyes to the need to shine a spotlight on a range of exploitative practices, including human trafficking, forced labour and forced marriage.

My reason for joining Acrath was because it is an organisation that works on a local level to implement the global goals of working towards the empowerment of women and girls by enabling them to overcome obstacles.
