Our voices are needed in the interfaith effort to end human trafficking.

When the global movement to end human trafficking calls the roll of its participants, most religions of the world will be there, and we are determined that Unitarian Universalism will not only be among them, but will be a leader.

We are committed to fighting slavery in all of its forms.

The UU Abolitionists address slavery in all the industries in which it is found, knowing that it sullies all of them: agriculture, manufacturing, domestic work, service work, and sex work. When working to end slavery in the sex industry, we contribute a perspective that is positive toward sexuality and supportive of people’s right to do what they wish with their bodies, such as we teach in Our Whole Lives sexuality education.

We are speaking up in support of those workers who are held captive in any industry, including but not only the sex industry.

We act out of our religious convictions while never imposing those convictions upon survivors.

We help survivors of any religious affiliation, and those with none. We will never use our position to pressure anyone to adopt our religious perspective. As the 19th century Unitarian minister and abolitionist, Theodore Parker said, “Be ours a religion . . . [whose] ritual [is] works of love.” As Unitarian Universalists, we seek to carry out works of love not by winning souls to our faith, but by freeing bodies and souls from bondage.
