In support of the National Human Trafficking Awareness Day (February 22), the Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) is holding events across Ontario to raise awareness about Human Trafficking.
Indigenous women have the right to live in safety, free from the threat, fear or experience of exploitation and violence. To prevent this ongoing issue for future generations, people need to be informed and aware of the risks and preventative measures they can take. National Human Trafficking Awareness Day serves as a platform to educate and provide safeguards to our communities.
