    Freedom Links training

    The Queensland Community Alliance and the Salvation Army are partnering to run training as part of the Campaign to end Modern Slavery in how to identify and response to modern slavery and exploitative practices in the seasonal worker agricultural industry. 

    This training will provide information on how to take action to help people facing exploitative employment as well as how to build power to address the deep causes of such exploitation. You will also be provided with the latest information on the campaign for a Modern Slavery Act, and together with others will have a chance to plan how we can ensure that the current bi-partisan support for action can be turned in to real outcomes that end the scourge of modern slavery from both our country and our international supply chains.

    What is the 6 Day National Training?

    The 6 Day National Training is a program for people committed to understanding the craft of community organising – who want to play a key role in leading the activities of the Alliance inside their organisation and acting as a bridge between our member organisations.
