End Slavery Day 2010 Event
WHO: The Ottawa Coalition to End Trafficking in Humans in collaboration with PACT Ottawa
WHAT: End Slavery Day 2010
This year's topic is: "Human Trafficking Happens at Home". In order to draw awareness to the local context of the crime of human trafficking, the RCMP will give a presentation about trafficking within the context of the Ottawa Valley Area. Local singer/songwriter Jill Zmud, who focuses her art on raising social justice awareness will offer a musical performance. Playwright Catherine Cunningham-Huston will present a 15 minute segment of her upcoming play on human trafficking.
Along with these terrific presentations, there will also be a chance to both present and visit booths from the various agencies in the Ottawa Region who provide essential services to victims of trafficking. This is an opportunity for all of us to learn about the other resources available, and to help build upon the coalition to end human trafficking.
December 2nd is the international day to raise awareness of the crisis of human slavery. We are all a part of the solution, no matter what we do. There are so many agencies working to end human trafficking. The Ottawa Coalition and PACT Ottawa see the need to bring these resources together, networked, so their impact can grow as essential in eliminating the presence of human trafficking in our area. We need all of you there so that we can all benefit from the whole picture.
