Kate Garbers TEDx Talk

Unseen's Director Kate Garbers recently took to the TEDxExeter stage to give a moving, informative and powerful talk on modern slavery, called Modern slavery, hidden in plain sight.

In her talk, Kate discussed how slavery is not consigned to the past and how prevalent it is in modern-day society. Kate told the audience of the story of Grace and how she came to be into modern slavery, how she survived and overcame her situation, and how Unseen and the Modern Slavery Helpline can support those in need. Kate talked about how many slaves actually work for her as a consumer and how as consumers we are all responsible for slavery and the choices we make.
