Do One Thing

12th October 2023 | Anti-Slavery Day

The Clewer Initiative

Anti-Slavery Day is an annual opportunity for churches, businesses, charities, and individuals to consider afresh what they can do to eliminate modern slavery in their communities.

However, when we hear the numbers of people trapped in slavery in the UK and beyond, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless.

That’s why we've launched our “Do One Thing” campaign to coincide with Anti Slavery Day this October!

Any action, no matter how small, could change or save the life of somebody in desperate circumstances. What's more, small steps can lead to more significant changes and working towards slavery-free communities is not something we can do on our own or overnight.

It could be as simple as signing up for a modern slavery seminar to learn more about the issue, putting up helpline posters around your church buildings, or downloading the Safe Car Wash App and using it whenever you go to a hand car wash.

Rt Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, the Bishop of Dover shares the One Thing she will do to fight modern slavery this year #DOT4ASD #AntiSlaveryDay

So, this month, please:

  • think about one step you can take to fight modern slavery
  • film yourself or your church describing your pledge, upload to your socials and tag The Clewer Initiative. Use the hashtags #DOT4ASD #AntiSlaveryDay
  • look out for our short films on your socials and please share them widely! We need to inspire more people!
