Forced Labour Awareness

LABOUR TRAFFICKING is not just something that happens abroad - it exists in our own backyard. Together we can make a difference.

AURORA HOUSE presents an interactive event exploring the issue of FORCED LABOUR.

Explore information booths, watch video presentations, listen to speakers and discover ways to help, May 28, 2pm to 10pm.


3PM: Panel of Speakers including a live message from Matt Friedman


Two Screenings of the Documentary Film The True Cost

Early Screening 5:00PM

Late Screening 7:30PM      


SWEATSHOP SIMULATIONS

Attendees can choose to participate in simulations of sweat shop conditions that will run throughout the event. These will consist of receiving a back story that reflects real-life exploitation scenarios lived by millions across the globe and attempting to meet the production goal set for the character while sitting at a table without breaks doing one repetitive monotonous task.  Participants can join discussion groups to share their thoughts and experiences once they complete their simulation.

Funds raised will go to support Aurora House in their mission to provide housing and support services immigrants and refugees who have been trafficked or otherwise exploited.
