Modern Slavery: Hidden in Plain Sight - Online event by Caritas Plymouth.

Caritas Plymouth are hosting an online event on the 25th Sept 2020 2:00-3:00pm to discuss the challenge of modern slavery and to share resources and ideas about how parishes and individuals can tackle this issue.

Presenters will include Caroline Virgo from the Clewer Initiative, Ann Donnelly from The Apostleship of the Sea/Stella Maris and Deborah Fisher OBE from Caritas Plymouth.

40.3 million people are estimated to be trapped in some form of modern slavery in the world today. 136,000 victims estimated in the UK (according to the Global Slavery Index). 6,993 potential victims found in 2018 (UK). People end up trapped in modern slavery because they are vulnerable to being tricked, trapped and exploited, often as a result of poverty and exclusion. It is these external circumstances that push people into taking risky decisions in search of opportunities to provide for their families, or are simply pushed into jobs in exploitative conditions. Modern slavery exists everywhere but we can do something about it.
