ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans) will open an office in Perth on October 29 to further its work nationally. The office has been provided by the Archdiocese of Perth and will be staffed by ACRATH volunteers. ACRATH National Executive Officer, Christine Carolan, said “ACRATH’s anti-trafficking work, particularly our work to eliminate forced marriage, has been driven in Western Australia by our volunteers. Some schools in the state with vulnerable population groups have participated in forced marriage teacher training and awareness raising sessions for students, particularly young women. More sessions are planned for next year.”
