‘Sexual Exploitation Still Happens Here’: virtual conference on Tuesday 25 May

“If we want to see change happen, we must shine a light on sexual exploitation, and bring it out of the shadows” – Wendy Sims, Chair of the Sandwell Anti-Slavery Partnership.

Sandwell Anti-Slavery Partnership is working to highlight the fact that, despite efforts to stamp out modern slavery, sexual exploitation still exists. Not only globally but here in the UK and in our communities. An estimated 4.8m people are victims of forced sexual exploitation across the world. Victims are men, women and children of all ages, ethnicities and nationalities. Last year there were 2042 reported victims of sexual exploitation reported: women, men, girls and boys.

You can help shine a light on this by attending a day-long virtual conference on Tuesday 25 May 2021.

‘Sexual Exploitation Still Happens Here’ will look at sexual exploitation through many different lenses, from its psychological impact to prevention and policing. Speakers include Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner Dame Sara Thornton and Jess Phillips MP.
