Preston chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association attended a regional interfaith event in Manchester with the theme of Modern Day Slavery hosted by the Nigerian Women’s Group Manchester.

A reverend began proceedings with a prayer, and a number of theater performances and presentations highlighted that slavery is still taking place in this day and age, including in the United Kingdom.

Ways that we can recognise modern day slavery and the importance of reporting it, were discussed by a large gathering of people from the local community.

It was clear that slavery is an issue still blighting our communities, and we all need to be alert to it happening in the workplace or in people’s homes.
