South and Southeast Asia Regional Forum – 2021
Anti-slavery movement leaders virtually convened via Zoom for 3 days at the second regional Freedom from Slavery Forum-Asia 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 Asia.”
The virtual Forum was an opportunity to increase participation, interaction, networking, learning, and sharing with an emphasis on regional priorities, ensuring that Asian grassroots ideas and voices are instrumental in and foundational to the movement as a whole. It ensured that Asian 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.
