2020 ANNUAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING VICTIMS
Every year, The Salvation Army dedicates one Sunday in September to lift up those trapped in human trafficking and corporately proclaim freedom. We spend time educating ourselves, leading freedom walks through our communities and joining Corps all over the world in prayer. This year’s Salvation Army Annual Day of Prayer for Victims of Human Trafficking will be held on Sunday, September 27th.
Here are a few ideas on how you and your Corps or center can participate on this day:
