FREE - THE SLAVERY SURVIVAL NETWORK

Hope anchors the soul.

 

As a survivor-focused and survivor-led organization, we believe that with hope, compassion and unity, we can bring an end to slavery. 

 

The anchor is seen as a symbol of a well-grounded hope. As the anchor was often a seaman's last resort in stormy weather, it was frequently connected with hope. Being made of a solid body, the anchor was also identified with firmness, solidity, tranquility and faithfulness. The anchor remains firm and steady amidst the stormy waters, symbolizing the stable part of a human being, that quality which enables us to keep a clear mind amid the confusion of sensation, emotion and the general "storms" of life. Therefore the anchor keeps us steady in the storms of temptation, affliction and persecution.
