The Salvation Army is deeply committed to fighting and responding to modern slavery and human trafficking. We have a theological and historical mandate. We believe prayer is foundational and an essential, powerful tool to fight for freedom and work towards a world free from exploitation. This year’s theme is Beyond the Dark, inspired by John 10:10 NIV.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.

We invite you to join The Salvation Army, its partners, and friends worldwide, to corporately cry out for justice and freedom and publicly declare our collective commitment to helping victims move beyond the dark and into a space of visibility and light on Sunday, 25 September 2022.
