Churches can speak out and make a difference. We can advocate to governments on having effective policies and legislation. There is also a lot we can do as individuals to change our own practices and influence the way the world works. For example modern slavery is prevalent in many supply chains. Where we buy our day to day items matters.
Take the survey at www.slaveryfootprint.org and find out how the things you might buy may be made by people trapped in modern slavery.
Find out which companies you can buy from that have transparent supply chains and are slave-free.
For example this website lists companies in the United States that are fair trade certified: http://www.endslaverynow.org/act/buy-slave-free/slave-free-companies
Focus on: The Pacific
