NFS News Archive November, 2010
Not For Sale (NFS) is excited to be offering a two-week Abolitionist Academy in San Francisco on December 27, 2010 – January 7, 2011 and we invite you to be a part of it.
The first week is our Investigator (Level 1) Academy, an intensive training for individuals who want to learn how to identify, document, map and work with the anti-trafficking agencies in your city or country. Attendees gain in-depth knowledge about the many types of human trafficking in the United States and beyond. At the conclusion of the first week, qualified participants receive a certificate in mapping.
Want to know what’s behind the toy or sweater you buy for your loved one this holiday season? The rating site Free2Work.org developed by The Not For Sale Campaign and supported by The International Labor Rights Forum (ILRF) is launching a new mobile phone application to provide consumers with this information while they shop. The mobile application, which is supported by Juniper Networks has been named one of the “11 Great Apps for 2011” by the SF AppShow. The Free2Work mobile application, allows consumers to easily browse company grades and
information, get updates from other activists, and see the latest video and photos from the field.
