Since August when The Clewer Initiative launched its craftivism campaign, hundreds of Mothers’ Union members have worked tirelessly to create crochet chains that represent the estimated number of modern slavery victims in their Dioceses or cities. Anti-Slavery Day saw their moving work unveiled! Thank you so much to everyone at the Mothers’ Union who crocheted, knitted, prayed and to those who attended Anti-Slavery Day services to launch their chains. A big thanks also to Sue Rees for the original idea.
We were also able to speak to the media about the craftivism project and conduct several regional radio and TV interviews. Check out Sue Rees and Claire Walford on BBC Radio Bristol:
