    WHAT

    • The Wonder Foundation has been leading a youth empowerment project - SEE ME - for the last 6 months, which has been building awareness amongst young people of active citizenshipmodern slavery and human trafficking. In the UK, the Home Office has stated that there are roughly 13,000 people living as slaves, though they admit that the number is likely to be far higher due to the silent and hidden nature of this crime.
    • Young people, drawn from a range of backgrounds, have been learning from experts in modern slavery prevention and rehabilitation and developing their own ideas to protect those vulnerable to modern slavery or to improve support available to survivors. 
    • Our young people will be presenting their campaign ideas to a wide variety of MPs, MEPs, academics, young people and journalists on the 5th February at Parliament, with support from experts and survivors.
