SPECIAL GUEST: Maya Esslemont, Director of After Exploitation, speaks to Ealing Amnesty about the treatment of trafficking victims on Monday 11th November 2019
For its last meeting of 2019, Ealing Amnesty anticipates an exceptionally informative and engaging meeting as we welcome special guest speaker, Maya Esslemont.
What can we do to help victims of trafficking?
Maya is the Director of After Exploitation, a volunteer-led organisation tracking what happens to human trafficking victims after they come into contact with UK authorities. Despite being vulnerable after living in slave-like conditions, Maya informs us that The Home Office routinely details or deports potential victims. Last year, through Freedom of Information requests, After Exploitation found that 507 potential victims of trafficking were held in immigration detention.
Maya's talk will explore the treatment of trafficking victims and what we can do to challenge the UK Government.
Join us at Northfields Community Centre on Monday 11th November 2019 at 7:30pm to find out what you can do.
