Fighting Modern Slavery

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter —  when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?”

  • Isaiah 58:6-7

Modern slavery is a pressing issue in the modern world. 40 million people (the combined populations of New York, London, and Sydney) currently live in slavery.
