SAS Advocacy is about resourcing individuals, groups and organisations that want to be actively involved in fighting for a slave free world.
A key service SAS Advocacy provides is matching people to appropriate organisations that can facilitate their active involvement. SAS Advocacy will support, but also challenge, Government of its obligations both nationally and internationally in terms of helping the vulnerable in our communities who are being exploited, enslaved, or trafficked against their will. If we are better coordinated and resourced we will have a better chance to combat the sophisticated criminal network that drives slavery and the slave trade around the world.
A key domestic advocacy contribution is the involvement with the New Zealand Network Against People Trafficking (NZNAPT). Peter Mihaere has recently been appointed to the Steering Committee and charged with the responsibility of re-invigorating the network along with other Steering Committee members.
