MODERN SLAVERY BILL: Has the proposed Bill got Teeth?”
Wednesday 29th January 2014, 7:30PM
The Oasis Centre, 1 Kennington Road, SE1 7QP
In December 2013, the Modern Slavery Bill Evidence Review, chaired by Frank Field MP, released its report which was commissioned by Home Secretary, Rt Hon Theresa May MP. Having spent two months consulting with NGOs, campaigners, frontline professionals, international experts and, most importantly, victims of modern slavery themselves, the review panel set out a blueprint for a new Modern Slavery Bill.
We’ll be joining STOP THE TRAFFIK to hear Frank present a keynote speech on responses to the current draft Bill and to take part in a discussion as he collects evidence to present to Parliament before Easter. Join us!
This is your opportunity to ask questions, challenge conclusions, put your point across and participate in a debate which will impact the eventual shape of the Government’s legislation. What more should be included? What’s good? What’s missing?
The evening will be chaired by Steve Chalke, Founder of STOP THE TRAFFIK and United Nations GIFT Special Advisor on Community Action Against Human Trafficking.
ACTIVIST GATHERING MEETING, Saturday 9th November 2013
On Saturday 9th November, we joined student unions, charities and anti-trafficking groups to not only discuss STOP THE TRAFFIK’s Chocolate Campaign, but to find out how we could help you – our supporters – to spot the signs of trafficking and take action against it.
We were so fortunate as to hear the following inspirational speakers talk about the movement, the successes, and the long journey before us all…
- STOP THE TRAFFIK founder Steve Chalke
- DS Phil Rashidi from the MET Police Human Trafficking Unit
- Major Anne Read from the Salvation Army Anti-Trafficking Unit
- Francesco Tramontin a Director from Mondelez International – Europe

In a market-driven system, the real power lies with the consumer…Don’t let anything make you think otherwise!
