Allies Against Slavery – Events Scheduled

allies@2xAllies Against Slavery have big plans for 2015

  • Mapping slavery across Texas: We’re starting the Texas Slavery Mapping Project to gather data needed to disrupt traffickers and improve care for survivors. http://www.utexas.edu/news/2014/12/04/texas-slavery-mapping/
  • Expanding survivor support: We’re continuing to support survivors at all stages of recovery, connecting them with resources and meeting direct needs alongside our partners. We’ll also explore new ways to fill in gaps in care that still exist in our community.
  • Launching the Slave-Free City Network: Slavery is too complex for one organization to solve on its own. That’s why we’re coordinating partners from 8 sectors to develop collaborative solutions and move our city closer to the slave-free goal.
