'An Economy Without Human Trafficking'

By Peter Heneghan

'An Economy Without Human Trafficking', a presentation and discussion on problems of modern-day slavery, will be held via Zoom at 7pm on Tuesday 9 February. (The Feast of St Josephine Bakhita, a Sudanese woman who was a victim of slavery, falls on 8 February).

The main speaker will be Sister Imelda, a Loreto Sister, speaking from Albania where she has worked with young people for several years to prevent trafficking. She will be joined by Julia Bayton, an outreach worker at Refugee Women Connect, an organisation that works with women asylum seekers, some of whom have been victims of trafficking. Julia will talk about the issues and problems which her work has brought to light.

The event will include a film produced by RENATE (Religious in Europe Networking Against Trafficking and Exploitation) and a discussion of issues surrounding modern-day slavery. The event has been arranged by South Liverpool Catholic Justice & Peace groups, supported by the Liverpool Archdiocesan Justice and Peace Commission.
