Sisters to parliament against trafficking

For 13 years, the Australian Catholic Religious Against the Trafficking of Humans group has been going to the national Parliament to advocate for policies and laws to address modern-day slavery practices in supply chains and labor markets. It is hardly likely in Australia that anyone would not accept that we do not want human trafficking or slavery, but the readiness to open their eyes and realize that it does happen here is very welcome. We hope that the Modern Slavery Bill will be effective and given the resources it needs.
