Act to End Sex Trafficking

Ireland is a destination country for victims of trafficking with 48 people trafficked in 2012, of which 23 were children.

Most victims are trafficked into and around Ireland for sexual exploitation.

As a frontline agency the Immigrant Council of Ireland wants our politicians to act and introduce laws to end demand for this evil 'trade'.

On EU Anti-Trafficking Day (October 18th) you can add your voice by joining our Thunderclap and getting people to contact their TDs and Senators through an action page www.turnofftheredlight.ie/action.

We are one of 68 organisations which make up the Turn Off the Red Light campaign to seek this change. Join us and together lets make sure our lawmakers act now to shutdown traffickers and pimps.
