My next guest is no stranger to a podcast with me. She has been the voice for modern slavery and human trafficking in Australia in recent years. After seeing the women in Germany being trafficked across eastern borders for sex and supporting them, she returned home to Australia, thinking we were immune to such horror. She soon discovered that the reality was that modern slavery did exist in Australia for tens of thousands of people and not just the sex trade - this made her angry and fueled her mission to create the Freedom Hub.
Sally Irwin is the Founder of Freedom Hub, which is a registered charity that equips survivors to live in freedom and they welcome volunteers and local fundraising events to help this cause succeed.
They also run a social enterprise café and retail store, which provides an opportunity for every Australian to choose ethically sourced products with no slavery in the supply chain, while making a difference in the lives of others. 100% of profits support the administration of our Survivor School.
With Freedom Hub cafes on the Gold Coast and in Sydney, along with an event venue focused on ethical event celebrations, this truly is a cause we need to get behind.
