Africa Regional Forum – 2021

Anti-slavery movement leaders virtually convened via Zoom for 3 days at the first regional Freedom from Slavery Forum-Africa to discuss issues most pertinent to the continent and set priorities for the next year around the theme of “Resilience and Resistance to Modern Slavery: Key Priorities for Africa.” The virtual Forum was an opportunity to increase participation, interaction, networking, learning, and sharing with an emphasis on regional priorities, ensuring that African grassroots ideas and voices are instrumental in and foundational to the movement as a whole. It ensured that African organizations will have greater access to the global movement and more opportunities to share their experiences and discuss solutions. The Forum highlighted experts and organizations from the continent as panelists and presenters while showcasing research and programming occurring in the region.
