Fighting Human Trafficking with Judy Boyle

Published on: 26th May, 2021

Judy Boyle has been involved in anti-slavery campaigning for decades. Her award-winning non-profit organisation, The No Project, targets youth awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking through film, music, art, dance, theatre, journalism, creative writing, education and social media.

We talk with Judy about:

  • the moment she realised that fighting modern slavery was her calling
  • how she is personally affected by the atrocity of the crime and what keeps her going
  • how she measures the impact of her campaigns
  • the power we have as individuals to make a difference

About the Podcast

AudaciousNess
A solid grounding on which to practice your audacity.
AudaciousNess showcases individuals who have set themselves bold, audacious goals and have worked to achieve them. Our purpose is to inspire people to act with the courage to create a positive impact in the world.

Through interviewing 'regular people' about their audacious goals, we highlight the fact that role models are everywhere. Each and every one of us can have an impact in some way. Our goal is to enable a courageous community that honours their genius and lives their calling.

The name 'AudaciousNess' has two components: audacious, meaning 'bold', and ness, meaning 'a strip of land projecting into a body of water'. We believe having a solid grounding on which to practice your audacity is crucial, or, in the words of the great philosopher king Marcus Aurelius (Meditations, 4.49):

"Be like the promontory against which the waves continually break, but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it."
