Archbishop Dr Philip Freier
Primate Anglican Church of Australia
"Today, I am signing the Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders Against Modern Slavery.
For any person the concept of slavery is abhorrent.
We know that it exists in far too many places in the world today, even in our own country.
It’s important that we all take a stand to eliminate this great evil.
We join together to recognise the God-given dignity of each human person to know freedom, to live without their lives being owned by others and to express themselves to the fullest potential that God has given them.
So join with me in helping to make our world free of slavery."
