We’re campaigning for modern slavery legislation!  

For the last few years, Tearfund has been campaigning for legislation that would make a difference in the fight against modern slavery globally. We’ve been advocating for a law that would require large companies in New Zealand to identify and address modern slavery risks in their operations and supply chains.  

New Zealand currently imports billions of dollars of products at risk of being made by people forced into slavery – including clothing, shoes, toys and food.
