One of the key distinctions about Stand Against Slavery is it’s desire to see organisations and communities, both private and public, collaborate in the fight for a slave free world.
Earlier this year we had Helen Sworn, Founder and International Director of Chab Dai, here in New Zealand and we had some great dialogues about the importance of collaboration in the abolition movement here in New Zealand and around the world.
Helen was instrumental in launching the Freedom Collaborative and as part of that they have started to develop some conversations between different people across the globe working to abolish slavery.
This first freedom dialogue is between Helen and Christa Crawford. I had the privilege of having Christa as my professor for a paper I completed during my sabbatical earlier last year, on sexually exploited and trafficked children.
These two people, in my humble opinion, are outstanding leaders in abolition movement and they are putting into action what collaboration is all about. Check out their conversation here.
