 Challenging honour-based abuse in the UK

We’ll hear from survivors who have experienced and escaped this abuse and are now living free from harm. In addition we will hear from experts who work with victims and raise awareness of these highly sensitive issues.

Karma Nirvana is an award-winning human rights charity which has worked with thousands of victims of honour-based abuse. The charity operates a national helpline, and run training programmes for the police, schools, and social services. It was instrumental in persuading the government to criminalise forced marriage in 2014.

Faith to Faithless was founded in 2015 as a programme of Humanists UK, and is working to develop the world’s first fully integrated support programme to help people who leave high-control religious groups and cults.

Following the discussion, there will be an opportunity for Q&A with the panel.

We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be an informative and thought-provoking event.
