Dear friends of ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans) – FYI & broader promotion please:
In 2015, Pope Francis said, “every person ought to have the awareness that purchasing is always a moral – and not simply an economic – act.”
Following on from the recent World Day of Prayer, Reflection and Action Against Human Trafficking on Sunday 8th February, St Bakhita Day, let us now promote slavery-free chocolates in our supply chains.
Given Lent begins today with Ash Wednesday, it is timely to take action in this and other ACRATH campaigns.
There are several resources (attached) developed by ACRATH to use through Lent within your parish, school or work communities, including:
- An information sheet about slavery free chocolate – Be a Good Egg This Easter – what to do.
- A news release to put in your bulletin or website
- Weekly notices to put in your parish or school newsletter, or workplace bulletins.
