Program Encourages Church Congregations to Stand Against Modern-Day Slavery

CINCINNATI, OH – The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, in partnership with International Justice Mission (IJM), will host Freedom Sunday on Sunday, September 24 at 4:00 p.m. The program is part of a national movement to spread awareness about modern – day slavery and international anti-slavery organizations to discover tangible ways to make an impact in the fight for freedom. This program is free and open to the public. RSVPs are requested.

Freedom Sunday is an open invitation for the public to learn about modern – day slavery and to partner with IJM. The program encourages churches around the country as well as public institutions to bring awareness of modern – day slavery and human trafficking to members of their organizations. Guests will be able to engage with professionals and learn how to spot the signs of slavery, what to do if they encounter a trafficking situation and how to take action.

“We are honored to be a part of such an experience occurring across the nation”, says Lara Green, Initiative Manager of Modern Day Slavery at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. “As widespread as slavery is today, it is critical that anti-slavery organizations collaborate to create broader awareness of the issue and to encourage more people to stand up against it.

After learning about what organizations like IJM are doing to combat modern – day slavery, guests will have the opportunity to engage with speaker Pamela Jensen, Director of Strategic Partnerships of IJM, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, BLOC ministries, and other local anti-trafficking organizations.

Freedom Sunday at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is Sunday, September 24, at 4:00 p.m. The program is free and open to the public. RSVPs are requested.
