As NSW continues its path of reopening and the countdown to Christmas gets shorter, Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans (ACRATH) present a webinar on ‘Human Trafficking: Placing the person at the centre of our Christmas shopping.’

With Australians expecting to spend more than $18 billion on Christmas shopping, this upcoming webinar gives consumers the opportunity to look at their consumer practices and what we can do to make our gifts more ethical.

The conversation will hear from Ethical Fashion Coordinator with Baptist World Aid Australia and Nick Savaidis, founder of ETIKO and an early pioneer of ethical clothing in Australia, as they work to slavery-proof supply chains and influence buying practices and how this impacts workers around the world.

Placing the person at the centre of our Christmas shopping’, hosted by ACRATH, will be held on Wednesday 27 October, starting with a chat over a cuppa at 11.15am AEST, with the conversation to begin at 11.30am AEDT.

With thanks to ACRATH.
