STAND AGAINST SLAVERY (SAS)

OUR WHY

We gather around a common belief that all humans are made in the image of the Creator God.  It follows then, that every human has certain unalienable rights that should never be contravened.

We believe that chief among these rights, is the right to be free, or as the UN Declaration of Human Rights puts it: ‘no one shall be held in slavery or servitude…’ [1].

We believe the only way to rid our world of the tyranny of slavery is for those with power to work together for those who are yet to have power.  Our purpose, our why, is to stand together for as long as is necessary to see a slave free world.

OUR HOW

We are convinced that there are five essential ingredients – collaboration; knowledge; spotlight; action; and strength – to creating an environment for a slave free world, and we are committed to investing everything we have to ensuring these five ingredients flourish in our world.

OUR SERVICES 

We believe our unique contribution is one layer back from the frontline. If we can connect government with civil society; the general public with frontline organisations; business with enforcement agencies; and survivors with support providers, we are doing our jobs. We achieve this through SAS Advocacy and SAS Consulting.

OUR HOW

Collaboration

We will never achieve a slave-free world working as individuals.

We are committed to being an intentional collaborating organisation within the anti-slavery movement both locally and globally.

Knowledge

From international accords, to collaborative theory, to who is doing what and where, on the slave and abolition sides; knowledge is a key weapon in the war against slavery.

Spotlight

Evil exists in the shadows. We will turn the lights on. We are committed to exposing the conditions that allow for slavery at every level of society, all the way from foreign government policy to domestic buyer behaviour.

Action

Knowledge without action is untenable. We will act to conquer and remove slavery from its oppressive throne.

Strength

This war will not be won in a generation. It is essential that those who join the fight remain strong and healthy psychologically, emotionally, and physically. It is also essential that our structures, systems, organisation, and leadership is sustainable for the duration of the fight.
