Saint Nicholas Freedom Group will work to have the autocephalous Orthodox Churches (Eastern & Oriental) address human trafficking by:
Step One: Each of the 15 Eastern and 6 Oriental Autocephalous Orthodox Church Primates publishes a theological letter clarifying for the modern reader the value and Dignity of the Image and Likeness of God in every human being. The Church primate explains in this letter the evil theologically and personally that modern slavery or human trafficking creates in this time.
Step Two: Each of the 15 Eastern and Six Oriental Autocephalous Orthodox Church Primates publish a pastoral letter. This second letter clarifies the responsibility of each faithful Orthodox Christian regarding the fact of human trafficking in their societies and in their life. Ideally, this letter will be able to direct the reader or hearer to local resources to prevent slavery, protect the vulnerable and victims, and to educate others.
Step Three: Each of the 15 Eastern and Six Oriental Autocephalous Orthodox Church Primates work with or create national, regional, and local governments, non-profit organizations, and Church networks to build capacities to prevent, protect the vulnerable and heal the victims of modern slavery.
