The Reality of Human Trafficking in Asia: A Virtual Summit

Asia Pacific Women of Faith Network (APWoFN), one of ACRP’s significant networks, will hold a webinar on Human Trafficking.

The webinar’s title: “The Reality of Human Trafficking in Asia: A Virtual Summit”.
Date and time: January 14-15, 2021 @ 12:00-14:30 (JAPAN TIME)

Human Trafficking is such a global menace that it calls for faith-based organizations such as Religions for
Peace Asia (ACRP) to take concerted efforts in raising public awareness with the hope that those in position to lead will take action in their communities.

ACRP’s women leaders are uniting across the countries to fight for human trafficking. Please join us together!
