Communities Mobilizing Against Modern Day Slavery: Focus on Asia America is a conference organized by the Asiamerica Mission to End Modern Slavery (AMEMS) a program of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island and the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) which seeks to put survivor voices in the lead of building a community-based movement towards ending human trafficking. Join us for a day of dialogue and strategizing with community supporters and advocates.
Hear from trafficking survivors who are standing for their right to dignity, respect, and security.
This summit aims to:
• Empower trafficked survivors;
• Educate and build broad awareness with the community on the issue of labor, trafficking and modern day slavery; and
• Initiate a community-based support network for trafficking survivors, dedicated to working with AMEMS as advocates and partners.
Through panel of speakers ranging from church leaders, community organizers, trafficked survivors and discussion workshops, we hope to engage you in understanding the issue of modern day slavery.
We look forward to seeing you. For more information, visit endmodernslaverynow.org
