current initiative

Human Trafficking is not just "over there." It is growing rapidly right here on our continent. It involves exploitation through force, coercion, threat, fraud or deception. Victims may be forced into labour, prostitution or some other form of servitude.

NABWU represents over 4 million women. Our member bodies are all working together in this initiative.

Together we will make a difference!
