Make Middlesbrough a Traffick–Free Zone

Make Middlesbrough a Traffick–Free Zone

Human Trafficking is one of the most appalling crimes of modern day times and occurs all over the world.  People are trafficked for reasons such as domestic labour, agriculture, restaurant and food processing work, and prostitution. The UK Human Trafficking Centre recognised 2,255 potential victims in 2012, including 549 children.  An event to raise the awareness of all forms of human trafficking will take place on Tuesday 30th September 7-9 p.m. at the Trinity Centre, North Ormesby.  The evening will include three short UNCHOSEN films telling the stories of people trafficked for domestic labour, prostitution and to look after a cannabis farm. There will be a presentation from Jacqui Cheer, Chief Constable and a Question & Answer session, chaired by Andy McDonald MP.  Door open at 6.30pm with refreshments and an opportunity to network and visit information stands from a wide variety of local and regional organisations.
