15th October is the date suggested to use these resources to raise awareness as well as pray for those who are trafficked and participate in combating Human Trafficking. This date is the closest Sunday to Anti-Trafficking Day on Wednesday 18th October. If that date doesn’t work, then any Sunday can be observed to spreading the word about modern slavery and human trafficking encouraging participation in Churches Combating Modern Slavery - Human Trafficking.
Human trafficking is the world’s fastest growing global crime, involving over 30 million men, women and children around the world today. This is more than at any other time in human history. Freedom Sunday is a day for global faith communities to stand together in prayer and take action to put an end to this horrendous crime.
This year, Freedom Sunday takes place on Sunday 15th October 2017.
