WHY STELLA FELLA?
The PROJECT FUTURES Stella Fella campaign is about educating and encouraging men and boys to make better choices. The campaign calls on all people, but men and boys in particular, to recognise that violence against and the exploitation of fellow men, women and children is a crime and will not be tolerated in our community.
PROJECT FUTURES invites men and boys in our community to stand up and say NO:
- NO to human trafficking
- NO to exploitation
- NO to modern slavery
Stella Fella has been running for six years in partnership with The Salvation Army's Trafficking and Slavery Safe House and has raised more than $600,000 to support this important cause.
Violence and exploitation against women is a growing concern in both local communities and abroad.
Many people believe human trafficking is something that occurs somewhere else, but Australia remains a destination for women and girls subjected to sex trafficking and increasingly for men and women subjected to forced labour.
This conversation is so important because:
1 in 5 women have experienced sexual violence in Australia
Human trafficking is the fastest growing organised crime industry
An estimated 45.8 million people enslaved in our world today
