Thomson Reuters Foundation launches the Stop Slavery Hub

Thomson Reuters Foundation Launches The Stop Slavery Hub

 

We are proud to announce that our partner, the Thomson Reuters Foundation has launched, The Stop Slavery Hub, an all-encompassing digital hub that is set to become the biggest online source of information on modern slavery. The Hub is meant to serve the growing community of individuals, organisations, governments, businesses, and funders engaged in eradicating human trafficking providing latest news, in depth investigations, and research. It will also showcase contributions from survivors and experts in the field. The launch makes Thomson Reuters Foundation the world’s largest news source for modern slavery and human trafficking.

Along with the latest antislavery news, the Hub will also contain information on the Trust Conference, the Stop Slavery Award and the Stop Slavery Hero Award, three flagship initiatives of the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

C&A Foundation is proud to expand our partnership with the team at the Thomson Reuters Foundation because of their high standards of journalistic integrity, nuanced approach to complexities, and, ultimately, their ability to get to the heart of the matter.

With the launch of the Hub, the team dedicated to reporting on slavery and trafficking at Thomson Reuters Foundation will significantly increase. The team will now comprise of nine journalists, supported by the 50 Thomson Reuters Foundation staff journalist and by a growing network of more than 250 freelancers, reporting daily on modern slavery. As well as dedicated reporters, with the sole mandate of reporting on the issues from various angles, located in India, Cambodia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Mexico, Brazil, UK and the USA.

Monique Villa, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, said: “Launching the Stop Slavery Hub and an increase in our coverage of slavery makes me very proud as it is the obvious next step in the work that we do to connect key players in the field all over the world. Our goal is to give those fighting against slavery the tools they need to rid the world of this shameful crime, and the Hub, a one-stop-shop for resources about modern slavery, is definitely a step in the right direction.”

Brandee Butler, Head of Gender Justice and Human Rights at the C&A Foundation, said: “C&A Foundation is proud to expand our partnership with the team at the Thomson Reuters Foundation because of their high standards of journalistic integrity, nuanced approach to complexities, and, ultimately, their ability to get to the heart of the matter.  As it has done in India, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s expanded coverage will bolster anti-slavery movements throughout Asia and Latin America by exposing truths, amplifying the voices of victims, and highlighting models for positive reform.”
