Marsh Chapel is reaching out in conversation with individuals and groups at Boston University and in the Massachusetts Abolitionist Network to raise awareness, educate, and involve people directly against the crime of modern-day slavery/human trafficking. Modern-day slavery is the world’s second-largest criminal activity, involving more than 27 million people held in situations of forced labor/debt bondage, sexual exploitation, child soldiering, and/or sale of body parts. At least 1 million people live in slavery situations in this country alone, some of them in Boston. The good news is that many exciting things are being done, in Boston and around the world, to stop modern-day slavery/human trafficking. For more information, to extend the conversation, or to join the monthly research and program group (dates listed above; all meetings with complimentary lunch) contact Rev. Victoria Hart Gaskell, Chapel Associate, at vgaskell@bu.edu.
