Roscoe Howell is a (semi-retired) social planner who can illuminate the problem of slavery with his social action and community development experience.
Roscoe is the public officer of Slavery Links Australia Inc. He is the author of Australians and modern slavery, which has a Foreword by The Hon Catherine Branson, QC, (President of the Australian Human Rights Commission) and illustrations by Reg Lynch.
Roscoe encourages his audiences to use fair trade tea, coffee and chocolate on all occasions. Fair trade products can cost a bit more than mass market products. But, he says, fair trade is a simple way to ensure we promote just working conditions back through the supply chain.
