(Event flyer download: 20220119 NFSJ Cafe #26 Flyer (E))

The next NFSJ Cafe will feature Ms. Brittany Quy and Ms. Elly Williams, both working for the Walk Free. They estimate that there are 40.3 million people living in modern slavery worldwide. This presentation will discuss how they measure the scale of modern slavery, what modern slavery looks like in Japan and Australia, how COVID-19 has impacted the situation, and how understanding the scale of the problem can help us work towards long-term solutions.

Walk Free is an international human rights group dedicated to accelerating the end of modern slavery in all its forms. Through a combination of direct implementation, grassroots community engagement, and working in partnership with faiths, businesses, academics, NGOs, communities, and governments around the world, they work to address modern slavery and dismantle its core drivers.
