WHO WE ARE
We are a coalition of survivors of human trafficking, lawyers, social workers, probation officers, psychologists, researchers, and human rights activists. We have come together to empower survivors of human trafficking to claim justice and to support governments to prevent and combat human trafficking.
All vulnerable communities in India will be empowered to protect and defend themselves from being sold and bought into slavery and servitude, and the State will take responsibility to provide people with services for their protection
We call upon the Government of India to pass the Draft Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2016.
We urge the Government of India to create a comprehensive investigation system through this Bill that treats human trafficking as an organised crime.
We call upon the Governments of Bangladesh and India to develop appropriate bilateral instruments and collaborate for prosecution of transnational offenders.
We urge the International Community to support collectives of survivors of trafficking and affected communities and support initiatives to organise them, and help them voice their demands from institutions of governance, welfare, law enforcement and justice.
