Marcel van der Watt, a lecturer in the UNISA Department of Police Practice in Johannesburg, is one of the speakers at the Anti Human Trafficking Conference in Port Elizabeth on August 30, 2014.

Leaders in the struggle against human trafficking will address and interact with delegates at the third Anti Human Trafficking Conference in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, August 30, 2014.

The conference speakers are Marcel van der Wat, a lecturer in the UNISA Department of Police Practice in Johannesburg; Diane Wilkinson, Gauteng Coordinator of the National Freedom Network; and Susan Kreston, a Fulbright Professor and Research Fellow in Law and Psychology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban.

The conference will run from 08h30 to 16h00 at Fountain Vineyard Church in Newcombe Avenue, Walmer Heights. The conference fee is R50 per person and includes lunch. Delegates are required to register with Margie at 041 367 110 or 083 554 3913 or fountain.vcf@isat.co.za by Friday, August 22. 

This year delegates are also invited to stay after the conference for an informal supper get-together where they will have an opportunity to chat with speakers and to share about their own involvement in the human trafficking and social justice sphere says co-convenor Major Margaret Stafford. She says it is anticipated that the informal interaction “might birth something new”.

The cost of the supper get-together is R45 and those keen to attend should register with Margie. 

The aim of the conference is to have a good working way forward in the battle against human trafficking in the Eastern Cape. Delegates are expected from the Eastern Cape, Gauteng and Western Cape.
