It supports people to leave slavery and build their lives in freedom, help change laws and policies to protect people from being exploited, change public attitudes to exploitative practices, and campaign for businesses to make sure people are not exploited in their supply chains. Anti-Slavery International is the world’s oldest abolition movement, founded in 1839 by the original abolitionists.

She is committed to building broad movements for change. Jasmine joined Anti-Slavery International 18 months ago and has worked to strengthen the organisation’s partnerships with business to end slavery in supply chains.

    Before joining Anti-Slavery she was Head of International Campaigns, Policy and Research at LGBT rights organisation Stonewall. Jasmine successfully developed the organisation’s first global campaign for equal rights, which partnered closely with global business. She also held senior roles with Article 19, Refugee Action and Care International, as well as advisory positions with the UK Department of International Development and the UK Foreign Office.
