Campaign: To raise awareness about sex trafficking in the UK

I don’t think people in the UK realise how close to home sex trafficking can be.

 

In fact, the UK is considered a significant destination country for women, children and men to be trafficked into the sex trade.

 

With human trafficking – particularly for the sex trade – becoming the fastest growing form of international crime, I feel it’s important to raise awareness about this problem so more can be done to prevent it.

 

For my Fixers campaign, we staged a ‘women sale’ in Cardiff city centre to highlight the issue in a thought-provoking way. 

 

I handed out flyers to the general public that contained shocking statistics about sex trafficking and asked people to consider what price they’d put on their own mother, sister, daughter or themselves.

 

The event I held and the responses I got back from the public have encouraged me to continue spreading my message and raising awareness.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

 

Esther Sian

Rebeccca Hughes

Tabitha Fry

Joyce Watson, National Assembly of Wales

In my Fixers film, Joyce Watson offered her professional opinion and supported my campaign.

 

Karen Cleverly, Wales Against Human Trafficking

March 2014

On the 22nd March I held an event in Cardiff city centre to show people how sex trafficking is not just an issue that happens abroad. You can see the flyers I handed out to the public below.
