Leaders of faith supporting the End Modern Slavery Initiative Act of 2015

With the introduction of the End Modern Slavery Initiative Act in Congress, the United States is poised to launch a massive, unprecedented global initiative to end slavery.

To bring this bold, bipartisan vision to successful passage and execution in 2015 and beyond, our elected officials need to know the movement of support behind this landmark legislation. 

People of faith have historically been at the forefront of abolition movements, and that is certainly true in the 21st century.

We are inviting any and all faith leaders who want to see modern-day slavery come to an end to join their names together. 

By adding your signature to the letter below, you will be joining pastors, organizational and network leaders and many more nationwide in this historic opportunity to deliver a mortal wound against slavery. Your voice is particularly influential because Congressional leaders recognize you as not only a constituent, but also  a leader in your community.

To add your name* to the letter below, or if you have any questions, please contact [email protected] with the following information:

  1. How to address you (e.g. Rev., Dr.)

  2. Your first and last name

  3. Your position (e.g. Senior Pastor, Executive Director)

  4. Where you serve (e.g. the name of your church, organization)

  5. City, State (location where your church or organization is based)

* By adding your name to this letter, you are representing yourself, and not the organization, congregation, network or denomination you serve.
