Description

Church Action on Modern Slavery and Exploitation in Bristol

Hidden Voices is an exciting ecumenical resource which aims to inform and support local communities in taking action on the challenging issue of Modern Slavery within their own communities.

It’s not just Car washes and Nail Bars. Evidence suggest that around a half to two thirds of homeless people have been or will be involved in modern slavery. We know that around 70% of women offering sexual services in Bristol may have been trafficked. Labour exploitation is also rife. The police have made it clear that they cannot prosecute their way out of this problem and need community support.

We know that vulnerability in any form can lead to exploitation. Most churches in Bristol or their members are involved in some form of social action project or outreach. We have links into most communities. How can we protect the vulnerable among us?

Please join us on Saturday 16th February 2019 10am-12noon at St Peters Henleaze, The Drive, Henleaze, Bristol BS9 4LD

We will talk about modern slavery in Bristol and think about how the churches can help slavery proof themselves and also work with their communities to tackle the issue
