It's been a long time coming, but here is some information about modern-day slavery and how alive and well it is today. This article says it way better than I ever could, plus the writer is someone we met at the Wilberforce conference, so I know she knows what she's talking about. :)
Tomorrow, over 5000 churches across America will unite in singing the hymn "Amazing Grace" for Amazing Grace Sunday. Pastors will share about the film and the modern movement from the pulpit, and people will sign the petition to end slavery, in its many mutilated forms, now, once and for all, forever. You can be a modern-day abolitionist and sign the petition, too, by visiting the Amazing Change campaign website.
The film opens this coming Friday. We hope 7 to 10 million people go see it. To be more specific, we hope you go see it . . . and walk away changed, with great hope in your heart for the way small groups that band together can really change the world. Perhaps you, too, will belong to one such band someday.
