Anti-slavery week, beginning 17th October Join the Abolition Initiative’s Kickoff Event for Antislavery Week at the Ropetackle Centre, 17 October 2022 at 11:00am – 12:30.
Were you shocked by Mo Farah’s story of being trafficked and enslaved as a child? Did you know, statistically, there are slaves living and working within a few miles radius of your home?
Learn about slavery today and how you can make a difference, by joining the fight against this modern day scourge. If we work together we can make our world slavery free in our lifetime!
This kickoff event will include the following:
* Keynote Presentation by Elizabeth Matthews, followed by Q&A
* Music led by Elizabeth
* Creation of a symbolic chain to represent slavery, one link at a time, using provided materials
* Writing on each link the words and phrases associated with slavery today, such as
* the Antislavery Help Line Number 0800 121700,
* the signs of slavery
* abolition phrases like “We See You”
You can attend additional meetings too and help Shoreham-by-Sea create the longest symbolic chain ever!
