Freedom Sunday

Freedom Sunday is a day of worship, prayer and action on human trafficking. On Sunday, 19 October, churches all over the world will join together to raise awareness of the crime of human trafficking and show the world our compassion for the men, women and children who are trafficked and exploited.

The following resources have been designed to enable your Church to take part in the day and to help your Church learn more about how it can tackle this injustice.
