In “I Am Brave,” a new 20-minute film, Joy shares her story of being exploited online, and invites us all to be part of stopping slavery for good. Hold a screening in your JL group and engage people with the hard-hitting reality of slavery and provide your community with a way to join the fight to end it.
Human trafficking is one of the most misunderstood crimes in Scotland. We know the buying and selling of people is happening in every Local Authority yet for the most part it goes unnoticed. SOHTIS (Survivors of Human Trafficking in Scotland) are offering training workshops to help Just Love groups* understand better what human trafficking is and how we can be best responding to it. Check out SOHTIS’ website to see what their training workshops include. If your group is interested, chat to your staff worker and then email [email protected] to book a workshop.
* These workshops are best suited for Scottish Just Love groups.
