How UK Anglicans and Catholics are teaming up to fight modern slavery

 From Crux- 
Anglican and Catholic leaders in the UK are teaming up to fight modern-day slavery through a free app that helps identify forced labor at hand car washes.“Over the last few years we have learned more about the evil of modern slavery and we have begun to understand how it is perpetrated in our communities in plain sight,” said Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury, according to the Guardian.
The app, Safe Car Wash, was launched on June 4 by two faith-based anti-slavery groups: The Church of England’s Clewer Initiative and the Catholic Church’s Santa Marta Group. To promote the application, clergy have been encouraged to speak about the app during sermons, school functions, and other public events.
