Madeleine Lippey and The Do Write Campaign were featured in the February 2013 edition of Myanmar Teen Magazine, a leading publication for young people in this nation of 60 million people.
Madeleine visted Myanmar, also known as Burma, in December 2012, and organized the second Do Write Conference in the country’s capital, Yangon (Rangoon). Myanmar is a military dictatorship that has been closed to the outside world for over sixty years and is just now beginning to open up and confront its human rights issues. Madeleine’s goal for the conference was to promote awareness of Myanmar’s human trafficking problem, and start a dialogue with Thai and Burmese victims, many of whom are young women that have been enslaved as sex workers or child brides. She is currently working with the National League for Democracy of Myanmar and Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to host a much larger conference in Myanmar in 2013, and is producing a documentary film about human trafficking in Myanmar.
