This young adult gathering will unpack not only the root causes of modern-day slavery, but also the ways in which we can act as a modern-day slavery abolitionist movement.

We will also be taking to the streets in active protest against modern-day slavery… so if you can only come for the Saturday afternoon, come join us in one of three expressions of the protest:
1. silent, praying poster-holder (holding placards with real stories)
2. bold, talking-to-strangers-canvasser (stopping pedestrians for conversation)
3. seated, booth-manning helper (where pedestrians can go to sign postcards to send to their MP about the issue)
Experience what it means to be a voice for the voiceless. Connect with like-minded youth, and celebrate victories as we dream and pray and work for the freedom of the oppressed.
