Add to Calendar September 22 10:30 am September 22 12:30 pm America/New_York When Power Means Freedom: A Conversation with Frontline Anti-Slavery Leaders

What does it mean to build power at the community level – and what does that have to do with ending modern slavery?

Calls to shift or build power have become commonplace in human rights and philanthropic spaces, with “power” being spoken about in vague, abstract terms. But for communities experiencing modern slavery, power is often highly tangible and visible – and real shifts of power can have transformational effects on people’s everyday lives.

Join us as anti-slavery leaders from Brazil, Ethiopia, Thailand and India share about what unequal power looks like in their communities and how their work to shift exploitative systems is opening doors to sustained liberation.

We’re excited to hear insights from:

Suthasinee (Pick) Kaewleklai, Labor Rights Foundation (Thailand)
Dr. Abera Adeba, Agar (Ethiopia)
Rosana Maria de França, Coletivo Mulher Vida and the Network to Combat Sexual Violence against Children and Adolescents in Pernambuco (Brazil)
Bhanuja Sharan Lal, MSEMVS (India)
