Modern slavery links to us in ways we may not even realise. It is behind everyday purchases like our clothing, food and smart phones. That link gives us power. Together we can do #SomethingForSlavery.
With 40 million people around the world and 4,300 victims of modern slavery in Australia, Project Didi Australia is kicking off a #SomethingForSlavery Challenge this March 2018. Get the knowledge and tools you need to drive positive change in your community.
Sarah Bartram, Project Didi’s co-founder, says:
We hope by building a #SomethingForSlavery movement we’ll all learn more about, and become advocates for, the hands, minds and lives behind our purchases. As consumers we have an opportunity to use our voices, our questions and our spending habits to demand transparency, living wages and fair working conditions from the brands we buy from.”
