Freedom Sunday

With all the factors facing faith communities this year, we’ve decided to emphasize that Freedom Sunday 2022 can be celebrated any time! In-person and virtually, we will join together to proclaim freedom for all people, especially those who are enslaved and exploited. Some faith communities will continue our tradition of celebrating this the last Sunday in February. This year that date is February 27.

We believe that now, more than ever, we as the Church need to be reminded of our critical role in working to prevent human trafficking and bring freedom to all people.

Any Sunday, or any day of the week for that matter, is a great day to proclaim freedom and learn how to prevent human trafficking!

We invite churches and communities of faith all across the Central Valley to participate on the last Sunday each February. If this doesn’t work for you, choose a day that does!

Freedom Sunday is an internationally recognized day for faith communities to focus on worship, prayer, and action in response to human trafficking which is the fastest growing crime in the world. 

If you are part of the Catholic community: consider observing Freedom Sunday on the Sunday closest to February 10th, in honor of Saint Bakhita. Contact us for resources.
