White Noise: Voices often unheard, Experiences often devalued, Presence often questioned.
Following from the Advoc8: YouTube Edition workshop, participants of the workshop will be airing their video they produced at the Project Liber8 Appreciation Night, where Project Liber8 will be celebrating our partners and sponsors who have supported us throughout our journey as well as the other NGOs who have been fighting for the cause. The videos will be screened during this event, and attendees at this public event will then vote for the best video, who will win a cash prize, alongside prizes from our sponsors.
Attendees will also be able to learn more about Human Trafficking during this event and be exposed to relevant parties who have been fighting for the cause for many years.
Join us on the 14th April 2016 to LEARN more about Human Trafficking!
About Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery. It involves controlling a person through force, fraud, or coercion to exploit the victim for forced labor, sexual exploitation, or both. An estimated 20.9 million men, women and children are living as victims of human trafficking globally, and more than half of them are in Asia Pacific. Stories about human trafficking are often set in far-away places, like cities in Cambodia, small towns in Moldova, or rural parts of Brazil. But human trafficking happens in cities and towns all over the world, including in Malaysia.
These chains are only invisible if you DON'T know what to look for; or, like many people, don’t want to look for. We all want to believe we live in a nice, safe neighborhood. A neighborhood where we can feel safe walking at night or letting our children play outside without worrying they are in danger. But too often, human trafficking victims are hiding in plain sight.
It's happening to people just like YOU.
Human trafficking doesn't discriminate on the basis of race, age, gender, or religion. Anyone can be a victim. Most of the human trafficking victims in the world are female and under 18, but men and older adults can be trafficking victims too. While poverty, lack of education, and belonging to a marginalized group are all factors that increase risk of trafficking, victims of modern-day slavery have included children from middle-class families, women with college degrees, and people from dominant religious or ethnic groups.
About Project Liber8
Project Liber8 is a youth-centric non-governmental organization that aims to raise awareness on the issue of human trafficking. Formed by youths in 2012 to reach their fellow peers, Project Liber8 has been actively involved in organizing and executing events that cater to current youth trends so as to be able to effectively disseminate facts and raise awareness to their target audience.
The mission for this project is based on the Triple A concept; AAA. Attention, Attachment, and Action.
We aim to attract the ATTENTION of citizens to this issue as it is only with proper edification that people are truly aware of the situation. With that, we hope to clean the windows of the minds’ eye of the public so the people, especially youths, can be given a clear view of the cruel reality that is human trafficking. We then hope to gain the ATTACHMENT of the public with regards to this issue so that we, as one movement can ACT together to bring change in whatever ways we can; be it by making donations to main anti-human trafficking organizations or by using our powers as consumers to go against human trafficking by not supporting brands that exploit trafficked victims.
