The Slaves Next Door

Panel discussion asking: how we fight human trafficking in London and beyond?


Speakers:
Amy Jasper, UK Community Network Co-ordinator, STOP THE TRAFFIK
The Revd Marcus Walker, Associate Director of the Anglican Centre in Rome
The Revd Steve Chalke, MBE, Founder of STOP THE TRAFFIK and Oasis UK
Andrew Wallis, CEO of Unseen UK
Chaired by The Revd Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James’s Church, Piccadilly

On the doorstep of every home and business in Britain lurks a dark network which trafficks humans for forced labour and exploitation. This modern slavery is on the rise. As of December 2014, the Home Office estimated there were between 10,000 and 13,000 potential victims of slavery in the UK alone.

Every person has a responsibility to help combat this global endemic, but where do we start? This panel event will discuss the realities of human trafficking, which is taking place across our neighbourhoods and communities. How can government, business, and faith leaders stop these horrors? What changes can we make personally to end these crimes?
