Freedom Sunday is a global day of worship, prayer and action on human trafficking. Faith communities join together to raise awareness of the crime of human trafficking and show the world our compassion for men, women and children who are trafficked and exploited around the world. As the world’s faith communities we must demonstrate a united and tangible response against human trafficking. This heinous crime must not be tolerated.
Freedom Sunday was originally started in the USA by ‘Not For Sale’. In 2013 ‘Not For Sale’ partnered with ‘STOP THE TRAFFIK’ to invite Australian churches to join together in prayer for freedom. In 2014 a number of global faith organisations wanting to work in partnership joined in with Freedom Sunday developing resources that would engage faith communities in ending human trafficking.
Through Freedom Sunday, faith communities annually make commitments to take action to prevent the crime of human trafficking in our local and global communities. Together our desire is for Freedom Sunday to continue to be a resource and an event that will include a growing number of faith communities around the world. Through our worship and by inspiring local community action, we seek to prevent the global crime of human trafficking.
Together, let’s stop human trafficking and let’s start freedom.
