We gathered in London to learn more about the current modern slavery landscape, brainstorming best practice, sharing our experience and making plans for action. The theme of the day was "Protecting Migrants and Refugees from Human Trafficking".
Bishop Alastair Redfern kicked off the day with a talk entitled Migration and the Church. He provided a theological reflection from Psalm 137, exploring the fact that migration presents a continuing challenge to human societies, one that addresses the heart, as well as the head, and must always begin with welcome, whatever the necessary, practical outcomes. Following this, the team at The Clewer Initiative shared Clewer resources that exist to educate and protect refugees from exploitation.
