The aim of this project is to give a voice to and empower (trafficking) survivors to speak out and have the confidence to participate in the battle of putting an end to trafficking epidemic worldwide. Participants will receive formal training and practical support to deliver community education, peer mentoring and policy recommendations to improve community and government responses in answering to the needs of the brave survivors.
Cyclists can choose to take part in the three-day cycle from Sydney to Ulladulla or the full six-day cycle from Sydney to Canberra.
