21 Ways to get involved with the A21 Campaign (11/21): read headlines

Being informed about human trafficking in the news prepares you to engage and discuss circumstances that are currently happening. People are more likely to pay attention to and be affected and inspired by somebody who a) sounds like they actually know what they are talking about and b) are passionate enough about the subject that they are speaking about to read around it and gather as much information as possible. As Sir Francis Bacon said: “Knowledge is power”.

The A21 Campaign  has a dedicated newsroom with a lot of information about human trafficking and modern day slavery (Click here). There has also recently been a bit about human trafficking in the news and the raids that the police are carrying out throughout the UK at the moment, so watching the news, reading newspapers, or going to online news sites.

Another great site for updates on human trafficking is the Polaris Project, so have a look at their ‘media center’: http://www.polarisproject.org/media-center.
