Christine has worked on the issue of human trafficking since a global Catholic sisters’ call for action in 2001. Christine is Executive Officer of ACRATH –a small Australian NGO working to stop human trafficking. ACRATH’s work is to raise awareness, support people trafficked into Australia, and to advocate for systemic change. One aspect of our advocacy for systemic change has been a successful lobbying week in Canberra advocating in federal parliament on human trafficking issues, including Australia’s aid program, visa reform, and the need for a financial compensation scheme for trafficking survivors.
