Please stay tuned for information about the 2022/23 Regional Forum program!
The Caribbean Regional Freedom From Slavery Forum will be held in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, from February 6-8, 2023. The last Regional Forum of the 2022/23 series will focus on “Enabling Local Engagements and Global Synergies for Addressing Modern Slavery in the Caribbean”.
The 2023 Global Forum comes at a time when modern slavery has increased around the world and the contributing factors are exacerbating the scale of the problem. According to global estimates, nearly 50 million people were living in modern slavery in 2021. Of these people, 22 million were in forced labor.
While these figures do not tell the whole story, they help us get a sense of the scale of the problem and call for us as a movement to respond with urgency.
