Global Freedom Network

As mentioned during the Sunday program on BBC R4 this morning, when Edward Stourton interviewed Archbishop Justin Welby and Archbishop Cardinal Vincent Nicholls together, the Global Freedom Network is an anti-slavery initiative in which both the Anglican and Roman Catholic church have joined forces.
This is how it is introduced on the Network’s website:

Eradicating modern slavery and human trafficking across the world by 2020 is the objective of a ground-breaking agreement announced on 17 March 2014 at the Vatican. This unprecedented agreement among representatives of major faiths inaugurates the Global Freedom Network (GFN) which also has the Walk Free Foundation as a founding partner.

You can read more about the GFN by following this link and about its founder in this Guardian article.
