We of Herzl-Ner Tamid and Mercer Island Presbyterian Church are part of a growing movement of Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians, and non-denominational groups who are working together, locally and globally, to address the issue of modern slavery.
On Wednesday evening, April 13 at 7:00 PM (registration will begin at 6:30 PM) at Herzl-Ner Tamid, we are holding No One Should Be Forced: An Interfaith Dialogue on Modern Slavery to raise the awareness about this issue, and to help us expand a growing movement for freedom and human rights around the world.
This event is timed to coincide with the holidays of Passover and Easter, holidays which embody a universal message of freedom, rebirth, and renewal. We are supported in this effort by Seattle Against Slavery, a local grassroots coalition working to make a slave-free world, one city at a time.
The evening will feature Urmi Basu, director of New Light (an organization that rescues children from trafficking) in a live feed from Kolkata, India; and Sheila Houston, a minister who reaches out to young people who are trafficked in Washington state.
We hope to see you there.
