VOA Our Voices 210: Behind Modern Slavery
A crime that capitalizes on the vulnerabilities of its victims, a form of modern-day slavery, this week #VOAOurVoices examines international efforts to combat human trafficking and help resettle survivors. Aisha M’uazu of VOA Hausa joins to share how survivors in Nigeria are rebuilding their lives, Evelyn Chumbow, a survivor of labor trafficking and a board member at Free the Slaves, shares her personal story. We also joined by Sarah Bessell, Senior Staff Attorney at the Human Trafficking Legal Center based in Washington, D.C., who makes sure survivors have access to legal counsel.
Welcome to “Our Voices”. This is where African women bring the continent’s most pressing issues to the table. Hosted by Hayde Adams FitzPatrick, Ayen Bior and Auriane Itangishaka, we'll ask questions, share ideas, discuss solutions, and most importantly, bring voices - Our Voices - to the conversation.
We’re bringing women’s voices to the conversation and, more than that, we’re building a community of inclusion and empowerment. We know you want to talk about the important issues of our time. And this is the place to do it. Your voice matters – every voice matters so join us in this conversation. Together, we can start transformational conversations online, in our living rooms, our communities, in our lives.
