Anti-trafficking conference programme released

Human trafficking and labour exploitation are two of the most significant global human rights issues facing us today. All countries are affected, including New Zealand.  Tip of the Iceberg, a two day conference, co-hosted by the Diocese, will bring together senior government officials, business leaders, academics, civil society, faith-based groups, and the interested public to discuss domestic and international actions we can take to tackle these issues.

A powerful programme of speakers from across these spheres of society has been released at movementonline.org.nz/tipoftheiceberg, and conference organiser Chris Frazer advises that this is the first conference in several years with such active participation from the business sector.

Please note: the conference opening will be held in Parliament, so for security reasons, those wishing to attend the opening need to have registered at least six days prior to the event.  Those who register afterwards will be welcome to attend, but will be unable to participate in the opening.
