A Time for Connections

The Abolitionist Network (EGC)
www.egc.org/abolition
The Abolitionist Network is a relational network, Equipping, Connecting and Refreshing abolitionists who are building bridges of networks in their local communities.

GBPAN is working with Sarah Durfey from the Abolitionist Network on a church engagement directory and action card. It will answer questions such as How can churches tangibly get involved? Where does the church intersect the reality of exploitation in their communities? Who is vulnerable? How can we as “the church” be the family for kids of refugees who don’t have their family network supporting them? You will be hearing more of this in the near future.
