Anti-Slavery Day 2012
Anti-Slavery Day was created by Act of Parliament to raise awareness of modern slavery and to inspire people to eliminate it. The Anti-Slavery Day Bill became law in 2010. It was introduced in Parliament as a Private Members Bill by Anthony Steen MP for Totnes, South Devon, in 2010 and passed through both Houses, unopposed although amended. The bill defines modern-day slavery as child trafficking, forced labour, domestic servitude and trafficking for sexual exploitation.
