A21WalkNorwich750Join Norwich church on walk against modern slavery 

Proclaimers Church is encouraging Norfolk Christians to gather in Norwich city centre on Saturday, October 20 and join with tens of thousands of people across the world as they take part in A21s Walk for Freedom against modern slavery and human trafficking. 

On Saturday, October 20, Norwich will host its fifth Walk For Freedom, a fundraising and awareness event that will take place in hundreds of cities across dozens of nations.

Operated by the global anti-human trafficking organisation, A21, the purpose of the walk is to raise awareness about the millions of men, women and children who are still trapped in slavery today. Walk For Freedom makes a striking impression as participants wear black shirts and walk in single-file lines.

Ande Gilbert of Proclaimers Church said: “Often people assume that slavery is an issue found abroad or in larger cities but the reality is human trafficking exists in Norwich too. A rising number of reported cases shows how essential it is that this issue is being brought to the public eye.”

The Norwich Walk for Freedom will start at Chapelfield Gardens at 10am.  Ande said: “Anyone wishing to be part of this campaign for justice is invited to come join us as we make a statement against human trafficking.”   

Christine Caine, A21’s Founder, said: “We are convinced that if we do this together, if we keep showing up, if we continue to be tenacious, if we continue to turn up with strength, numbers, and courage, then we can see slavery eradicated in our lifetime.”
