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.
With over 12-years experience the Immigrant Council of Ireland is the leading voice in securing improved rights and protections which benefit Irish citizens, migrants and their families.
As an organisation we pride ourselves on being pro-active. We offer support, advice and information, while also achieving positive change through strategic legal action and engagement with lawmakers to make immigration laws fit for purpose.
Ensuring access to justice is the cornerstone of all our work. We are committed to supporting individuals and families often at a vulnerable stage in their life.
Support victims of trafficking as well as working to ensure Ireland has a robust response to this major crime is one of our key priorities.
We have secured the unanimous support of the Oireachtas Justice Committee for our call for laws ending demand for this evil trade, now we need your support to make this a reality.
