THE JUSTICE CONFERENCE:
FFJF was on a panel with International Justice Mission, the A21 Campaign and Stop the Traffic - we all have a slightly different approach, but we are all about the same thing: to stop trafficking and slavery in our lifetime! FFJF's approach is to curb it's demand even before human trafficking begins!
At this Festival, FFJF spoke about the intersect between human trafficking and people smuggling - and the reality of the trafficking highway in south-east Asia that is accessed by organised crime! What should we do about it? We need to make sure Australia is not creating a demand for trafficked persons - as consumers, the power is ours - in the garments we purchase, and refusing to access pornography or the adult industry that creates a platform for trafficking and slavery to thrive!
AUSTRALASIAN LAWYERS CONVENTION:
FFJF was able to present on Human Trafficking - and why the Nordic Model is it's solution! This is an important conversation to have in the context of curbing the demand of trafficked persons.
We were also able to welcome a very special guest - a Karen refugee who spoke to us about the realities and challenges of displaced persons!
FFJF has also been busy building the FFJF brand on line, launching new FFJF products on our on-line store, networking, building campaigns and projects, and dreaming BIG for 2017!
