Raising Awareness of Slavery

How do Northwest Soroptimists help to raise awareness of Modern Day Slavery?

By taking part in the PLASP Roadshow

Soroptimists from Preston, Blackpool, Garstang, Pendleside and Blackburn went to Blackpool on Saturday October 22nd to support the Pan Lancashire Anti Slavery Patnership (PLASP) with their Raising Awareness Roadshow. It was held to mark Anti Slavery Day on 18th October.

Volunteers were giving out leaflets in front of a large screen which attracted a lot of interest from passers by. Our members marched up and down the sea front wielding placards and also handing out leaflets. It was busy in Blackpool probably helped by the bright and sunny afternoon, so hopefully a few members of the public have learned a little about Modern Day Slavery.
