Brigidines recognise with gratitude the ongoing leadership,  resourcefulness,  outreach and advocacy at the heart of  ACRATH ‘s mission  to eliminate human trafficking and the harm it causes.


For many years, annual advocacy visits to Parliament (Canberra) have been part of the fabric of ACRATH’s work – and campaigning for the establishment of a Commonwealth Anti-Slavery Commissioner role has been high on the agenda!




‘On 28 May 2024 the Australian Parliament passed the Modern Slavery Amendment (Australian Anti-Slavery Commissioner) Bill 2023 to enable the establishment of Australia’s first federal Anti-Slavery Commissioner.  The Commissioner role will include engaging with and supporting victims and survivors of modern slavery and supporting business to address risks of modern slavery practices in their operations and supply chains. ‘

With ACRATH, we hope that the appointment of a Federal Anti-Slavery Commissioner will  significantly contribute to the fight against modern slavery in Australia.


Good news, ACRATH!
