In 2017 CCJ held its first Freedom Seder, bringing together over 70 faith leaders, political figures and activists for a unique Seder experience. The Freedom Seder encouraged reflection and action on tackling human trafficking and modern slavery. The Seder was a development of CCJ’s work with Stop The Traffik and a number of Christian movements on Freedom Sunday, a Christian day of worship and action on these issues which takes place in October. The Seder marked one of the first times these issues have been considered in an interfaith context.
The Seder utilised CCJ’s bespoke Haggadah Companion which comprises: theological reflections on the Seder and human trafficking; responses to these issues from religious leaders; stories from victims and survivors of trafficking; information about modern slavery and simple action points to start making a real contribution to ending human trafficking. The Haggadah Companion is available as an e-resource to be used in your communities locally from our website by clicking the link below –
