Where do we stand as Soroptimists on Modern Day Slavery?
Combating and eradicating Modern Day Slavery is an aim that Soroptimists all over the world are working towards. Search the web for Soroptimists tackling anti-human trafficking and hundreds of hits come up. Our own federation SIGBI passed a programme action 18 months ago to charge clubs to raise awareness of and challenge governments in our federation to address the situation. Soroptimists in Wales South, took this challenge on as a region prompted by the considerable amount of work already undertaken by SI Cardiff and SI Tenby. Just over a year into our project, the symposium on 7th February was an opportunity to share with Soroptimists and non- Soroptimists across the region what is going on and how we are and continue to work in this area.
